"A gunman wielding a rifle shot and killed a student at Reynolds High School in Troutdale, Ore., on Tuesday morning, creating a frantic scene outside the suburban high school as police rushed to the area and students and staff were evacuated.
"The 'lone gunman' is dead, Troutdale police chief Scott Anderson said at a briefing with reporters.
"In addition to the student who was killed, a teacher sustained non-life-threatening injuries, Anderson said.
"'This is a very tragic day,' said Linda Florence, superintendent of the Reynolds School District.
"There was no word yet on if the gunman was a student or otherwise affiliated with the school, which is located about 17 miles east of Portland."
