TROUTDALE, Ore. (AP) - A gunman and a student are dead after a shooting today at a high school near Portland, Oregon.

Authorities say there were reports of shots fired at 8 a.m. today at Reynolds High School in Troutdale.

Students say they were told over the intercom that there was a lockdown and that they should quietly go to their classrooms. They were then evacuated from the school, hands on their heads, to be reunited with their parents in a supermarket parking lot.

One 15-year-old student says he saw a physical education teacher at the school with a bloodied shirt. Another 15-year-old says she was hunkered down in a locker room with another student and two teachers.

A TV station (KGW) reported that teams were going through the school, room by room. Police set up tape around the area, and were not allowing people to pass through.

TROUTDALE, Ore. (AP) - Police in Oregon say a gunman fatally shot a student at a high school near Portland.

Authorities said Tuesday the suspect also was dead and the situation is stabilized.

The Multnomah County sheriff's office said there were reports of shots fired about 8 a.m. at Reynolds High School in Troutdale.

Authorities say they're now focusing on reuniting students with their parents.

Authorities said Tuesday a suspect in a high school shooting near Portland is dead and the situation is stabilized.

The Multnomah County sheriff's office said there were reports of shots fired about 8 a.m. at Reynolds High School in Troutdale.

Students say they were told over the intercom there was a lockdown and to quietly go to their classrooms.

Students were evacuated from the school, hands on their heads, to be reunited with their parents in a supermarket parking lot.

Freshman Daniel DeLong, 15, said while waiting after the shooting that he saw a physical education teacher at the school with a bloodied shirt.

"I'm a little shaken up," DeLong said. "I'm just worried."

He said he was texting friends to make sure they were all OK.

"It just, like, happened so fast, you know?" he said.

Freshman Morgan Rose, 15, said she was hunkered down in a locker room with another student and two teachers.

"It was scary in the moment now knowing everything's OK I'm better," she said.

SWAT teams were going through the school room by room, KGW-TV reported.

Police set up tape around the area and were not allowing people to pass through. Fire trucks were on the scene.

The shooting follows a spate of recent attacks at or near school campuses.

On June 5, a 19-year-old man was killed and two other people wounded when a gunman opened fire in a building at Seattle Pacific University.

Troutdale is a small city of about 15,000 near the Columbia River, about 16 miles east of downtown Portland.
