At least three people have been hurt in a shooting that took place at the Freeman High School in Spokane, Washington.

Local news station KXLY reports that all Spokane South Hill Schools have been placed on lock down due to the shooting. Police tell the station that at least three people have been hurt, but have not yet revealed those people’s identities or their conditions.

Emergency crews are headed to the school.


Multiple injuries have been reported and a suspect is in custody after a shooting at Freeman High School in Rockford, south of Spokane.

Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich said at the scene that six people were shot, one fatally.

“The shooter is in the backseat of a patrol car right now,” Knezovich said.

Michael Moore, the chief of surgery at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center, said eight surgery sites were open for the victims. Hospital security and local law enforcement were directing traffic in the area.

“We’re all hands on deck,” said Dr. Jeff Collins, the hospital’s chief physician. “We train for this regularly.”

Dozens of vehicles including a LifeFlight helicopter responded to the scene of the shooting. Parents were seen making anxious phone calls near lines of caution tape at the school. First responders were urging motorists not to use Highway 27 so that ambulances and other vehicles could get through.

A Twitter user named Christina posted a photo of children sitting on the floor of a classroom at about 10:30 a.m. with the caption: “At Freeman elementary currently. I am a junior, evacuated from the high school. At least 4 shots.”

An automated warning that was repeated on law enforcement radio channels said, “Freeman High School. Gunshots or stabbing. Stand back.”

Annie Baxter, whose two daughters attend Freeman Middle School, just across the street from the high school, said in a phone call that children were running into buildings and an alarm was sounding when she pulled up to the school area at about 10:15 a.m. Classes were about to begin because it’s a “late start” day, Baxter said.

“They did a modified lockdown drill yesterday,” she said. “I thought it was weird because they wouldn’t do (a drill) two days in a row.”

Baxter said she was being held in a multipurpose room with about 30 other people in Freeman Elementary School, which is also nearby. She said she was told that at least one person was shot but is expected to survive.

Baxter also said, “I saw someone carrying a gurney into the elementary school but I didn’t know why.”

Spokane Public Schools said on Twitter that all schools in the district “are in full lockdown as a precautionary measure.” An automated phone call also went out to parents of Spokane schools students. Freeman schools are not part of that district.

Cheryl Moser said her son, a freshman at Freeman High School, called her from a classroom on the second floor after hearing shots fired.

“He called me and said, ‘Mom there are gunshots.’ He sounded so scared. I’ve never heard him like that,” Moser said. “You never think about something happening like this at a small school.”
