U.S. school shooting in state of OregonAnother deadly school shooting occurred in the United States Tuesday. CCTV’s Jay Gray reports.
This recent shooting makes at least 74 school shootings in the country since the Sandy Hook elementary school massacre in December 2012. This latest shooting happened in the U.S. state of Oregon, where one student killed another student and injured a teacher before being found dead by police.
Shortly after 8 A.M. the first reports came of shots being fired on campus. A massive police response converged on the school, looking for a gunman while securing students. Anguished parents, kept at a distance, awaited news.
Two hours after the incident began, grim details emerged. A teacher was also treated at the scene with non-life threatening injuries.
Officials credit the quick action of two school resource officers with assisting law enforcement with ending the incident. However, the incident is now one the city of Troutdale shares with other communities coping with the tragedy of a school shooting.
