One Dead in Shooting at School in Northwestern US

LOS ANGELES – One person was killed and five others wounded on Wednesday in a shooting at a secondary school in the northwestern US state of Washington, media outlets reported.

The incident took place at Freeman High School in Rockford, some 500 kilometers (300 miles) east of Seattle, The Spokesman-Review newspaper and KHQ television said, attributing the information to Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich.

The shooter is in custody, The Spokesman-Review said, while Spokane Fire Department spokesman Brian Schaeffer said that the threat “has been eliminated.”

Images posted on social media showed law enforcement personnel and other first responders arriving at the school as well as parents gathering to await news about their children.

The sheriff’s office said on Twitter that Rockford’s elementary and middle schools were placed on lockdown as a precaution.

“Safety of students #1 PRIORITY,” the office tweeted, while asking the parents of Freeman High School students to remain patient.

“We understand parents are extremely concerned. We will provide info ASAP (as soon as possible), please avoid area,” the sheriff’s office said.
