Two Graham-Kapowsin High School students were wounded Tuesday afternoon in a shooting near the school that apparently stemmed from a gang-related fight.
A 17-year-old youth was taken into custody while two other suspects remained at large Tuesday night in connection with the shooting of two students outside a high school, police in Graham, Wash., said.
One student was found near the school's football field, the other in a locker room, according to the local Sheriff's office.
The shooting suspect fled the scene in a green vehicle that might be a Chevrolet Impala, police said.
Both suspects are described as black males. Troyer said the two victims are boys.
Pierce County Sheriff's Department is offering a reward for information in the case through Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-TIPS.
Their condition is not yet known.
The high school is located at 108th Avenue East and Eustis Hunt Road East in Graham, in Pierce County, and the gunshots were reportedly fired on the Eustis Hunt Road side of the campus.
Students were beginning to be released from school about 4:30 p.m., starting with Frontier Middle School, according to the Bethel School District.
Deputies were securing the campus, and said the students in lockdown were safe.
"We are confident there are no shooters at the school or on the school grounds", sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer said.
Dave Reichert, United States Rep. R-Auburn, also tweeted, "My prayers are w/ the families of the victims; the students, teachers, & staff at the school; & the community affected". It's unclear whether the shooter or shooters were students at the school.
The high school campus is alongside the campuses of Frontier Middle School and Nelson Elementary School.
Graham-Kapowsin is part of the Bethel School District.
