PORTLAND, Ore. — A person, who started firing inside a high school near Portland, Oregon, is dead.

A student has now also been confirmed dead.

About an hour after the shooting, Oregon State Police said the area was secure, and the situation is contained.

The shooting happened at about 8 a.m. PT at Reynolds High School in Troutdale, about 12 miles east of Portland, said Sue Strickland of the Troutdale Police Department.

Classes were in session at the time.

It wasn’t clear how many people were injured, and details about what led to the shooting weren’t immediately available.

The shooter was dressed all in black with a protective vest and helmet and possibly a rifle.

      Hank, I work with a guy who thinks its okay to basically bully an 80yr old man who wouldn’t hurt or say a bad thing about anyone. at 80 years old he shakes some and has a “tick” that can be annoying but he is 80. Unfortunately he has 3 daughters that will probably be just like him…hopefully they will learn to not bully before they get in a situation like this.

    Quick to jump on the “bullying” train. This person obviously had no respect for human life. However, most people who are bullied can overcome their fears, hatred, etc. through decent counseling and the kindness of others. Those are moral traits that appear to be lost in today’s teaching of kids. “Leave ‘em alone; kids are gonna be kids”! BULL!! Kids need to be taught early, and continued throughout their growing years! This shooter obviously did not the teaching he needed to avoid shooting others at school! Parents – teach your kids about caring for others! You might just save lives!!

      This is what happens when you glorify school shootings. It’s some sick kid’s way of gaining immortality. So keep putting stuff like this on the front page and it will just keep happening.

        I agree. You remember last week the story of those two 12 year old girls who stabbed another girl and blamed it on “Slender Man” character? It was all over the news for days on end. Well guess what, a 13 year old Ohio girl stabbed her mom yesterday and blamed it on “Slender Man” GEE I wonder where in heavens she got that idea?
        If the news would stop glamorizing these kids, there would be less copycats!

    Nobody raises their children anymore. They simply provide food, shelter, clothing and entertainment while relying on the media and society to do the teaching (a.k.a. keep them out of their hair). This is what comes of it. Well-executed spankings do wonders in early childhood development. They teach consequence as nothing else, as well as recovery after the fact. Today’s kids can’t handle consequence because they never learned what it was by the age of seven, and they are unable to recover from it when it is encountered. And they have absolutely no guidance in either regard. Duh.

      well said. One of the first things they need to do is take those stupid TV/video players out of their cars. Kids need to just shut up and sit down and learn to be patient.

      Think we should just go ahead and write off this entire generation and start right with the next crop. It’s too late to fix this one. We’ll have to live with some of those consequences for the next 50 years or so.

  • this city is a joke

    This is what happens when you have public officials get on tv and say as a society we should be more understanding and more sensitive to these idiots because their parents chose not to raise them properly. Not to mention when you try and put foot down…somebody got something stupid to say. We cant have it both ways people!!!!
