VIDEO: Student Killed, Teacher Injured in Oregon School Shooting

A gunman carrying a rifle opened fire and killed a student at an Oregon High School on Tuesday, and Troutdale PD confirmed the gunman himself is also dead, reports KPTV.

Police haven't identified the victim who was killed. Officials said a teacher, who students and neighbors identified as P.E. teacher Todd Rispler, was grazed by a bullet.

Several law enforcement agencies responded to reports of an active shooter at the school, and when they arrived, they evacuated the school of all students and staff.

Police said two school resource officers and a tactical team "brought this to a conclusion."

Actually the suspect brought this to a conclusion when he shot himself in the bathroom. Nice try though.

Ima Leprechaun...how would you know this? Do you have first hand knowledge of this statement or are you spreading gossip from third party info? I am sure the officers on scene had something to do with handling this situation. I wasn't there and do not know nor will pretend to know the order of which the events took place.

Yes, I do have first hand knowledge.

Active shooters don't often kill themselves until there is pressure from responding officers or SROs. The officers absolutely "brought this to a conclusion" by responding and applying pressure.

Whatever makes you happy. But he killed himself before he was cornered so I guess you don't really know.

Thanks Leperchaun for chiming in, yeah he took the cowards way out when faced by the police who had guns! To chickensh@t to face another person with a gun! These cowards only shoot unarmed people!
