The Seattle Times reports that multiple injuries are being reported after a shooting at a high school south of Spokane. At least five ambulances and a LifeFlight helicopter have been called to the scene at Freeman High School. In fact, according to the Spokesman-Review, a total of 5 people have been shot and one victim has died.
The number of people shot and killed is still breaking. Information about what happens to victims being taken to the hospital is still breaking as well. The Seattle Times reports that so far, it has been reported that a total of six victims have resulted from the shooting, and three of them were admitted to the hospital. The ages of the victims and the severity of their injuries are not yet known. The three patients are reportedly in stable condition at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center and Children's Hospital in Spokane.
The shooting suspect has been taken into custody. Earlier today he was captured by police and placed into the back of a patrol car. He then was transported away from the scene.
All Spokane Public Schools were placed on lockdown immediately after the shooting, which apparently took place this morning. The lockdown occurred at precisely 11:25 am.
The Governor of Washington, Jay Inslee, called the shooting "heartbreaking" and let the staff and first responders know that he is grateful for their service.
