Sheriff: 2 students shot at Pierce County high school

Two Graham-Kapowsin High School students were wounded Tuesday afternoon in a shooting near the school that apparently stemmed from a gang-related fight.

Troyer also added the police suspected the shooting to be gang-related, which forced not only the high school but nearby Frontier Middle School, Graham Elementary and Nelson Elementary School also to go on lockdown.

The agency announced the incident on Twitter shortly before 3 p.m., saying one student was found in a parking lot by the football field and another was found in a locker room. The two were transported to Tacoma General Hospital.

The sheriff's office said the suspects were described as multiple black males, and that they fled in a green vehicle, possibly a Chevy Impala.

Deputies who responded to the scene checked the school's grounds and found no signs any suspects were there.

Two students, according to the Pierce County Sheriff's Office, were shot.

Pierce County Sheriff posted on their Facebook page that 911 callers reported a fight near the school grounds on Eustis Hunt Road East right before shots were heard. "All remaining students on campus are secured with deputies, considered safe as security sweep is ongoing". Gutierrez also revealed how he got a text from his son saying he can't leave the school as they are going on lockdown.

"I was actually kinda calm because we've been trained since really early on to know what to do in these situations", said Graham-Kapowsin ninth-grader James Baker.

Graham-Kapowsin High School had 1,855 students during the 2014-2015 school year.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and students involved with this shooting today". The victims ran to the high school after being shot.

The Pierce County Sheriff's Office appealed for the public's help in identifying the two wanted suspects and tweeted that Crime Stoppers was offering a reward for information.
