Police: 3 conscious after shooting outside school

Posted: Updated:

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A shooter wounded two boys and a girl outside an alternative high school Friday in what may be a gang-related attack, Portland police said.

The victims are believed to be students at Rosemary Anderson High School, which serves about 190 at-risk students, Sgt. Pete Simpson said. The three were conscious and breathing when they were taken to the hospital, he said.

The shooting was reported after noon and happened at a corner outside the school, Simpson said. The assailant fled, and the students ran back to the school for help, he said.

Officers don't know whether the shooter was alone or with others, but Simpson says preliminary information suggests it's gang-related.

Rosemary Anderson High School is an alternative school that serves at-risk students who were expelled or dropped out, are homeless or single parents. According to the school's website, 190 students annually are enrolled at the north Portland location. The school also has a second location in Gresham.

Parents have been summoned to the school, and a nearby high school and community college were put on lockdown.

Portland was the scene of a school shooting in June. A freshman killed one student and then himself.

Jared Padgett, 15, opened fire June 10 after arriving at his high school east of Portland heavily armed. He killed 14-year-old Emilio Hoffman in the boy's locker room at Reynolds High School in Troutdale and another bullet grazed physical education teacher Todd Rispler. When confronted by officers, Padgett went into a bathroom and died from a self-inflicted gunshot, police said.
