According to parents who had been briefed by the police, three shooters were involved in a first period gym class shooting of a teacher in the high school's locker room. The teacher was injured and taken from the school on a stretcher. As yet it's unclear if there are more victims or if more shots were fired in the incident.

At least one of the shooters fled the scene with a gun and was found at a nearby church. One of the shooters has been confirmed dead by the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office.

At approximately 8:50 a.m., evacuation of the school had begun and students were reportedly exiting the school with their arms over their heads.
