One student was killed and up to four other people were injured in a shooting Wednesday morning at Freeman High School in Rockford, WA, Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich said.
“The shooter is in the back seat of a patrol car right now,” Knezovich said at the scene, where students, parents and teachers had been corralled into school buildings after the shots rang out shortly after 10 a.m.
Spokane Fire Chief Brian Schaeffer said three of the victims were immediately transported to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center. At about noon, hospital officials told the Spokesman they had three pediatric patients from the shooting, all in satisfactory condition.
The suspect’s identity was not immediately clear, and there had been conflicting reports about the total number of people injured, with some reports saying as many as six.
