Two students have been shot at Graham-Kapowsin High School in Graham, Wash., the Pierce County Sheriff's Department confirms.

The shooting happened about 2:30 p.m. Officials say one student was found in the parking lot by the school football field; the other student was found in a locker room.  The two students were transported to area hospitals; the victims' conditions are unknown.

The suspects are described as multiple black males, who fled the scene in a green vehicle, possibly a Chevy Impala.

Deputies are actively sweeping the school grounds. At this point, officials say it appears the shooters are not on campus. All remaining students on campus are secured and considered safe as deputies conduct their security sweep.

Graham-Kapowsin High School is located at 108th Ave E & Eustis Hunt Road E. The shots were reportedly fired on the Eustis Hunt Road side of the campus.


Bethel Schools said three schools in the area are in lockdown: Graham-Kapowsin High School, Frontier Middle School and Nelson Elementary. Students at Graham Elementary have been released to their buses with staff supervision. All after-school activities at Graham-Kapowsin High School and Frontier Middle School have been cancelled. School officials will provide parents more updates as they become available.
