A terrifying shooting at Freeman High School in Washington state has left 1 student dead and 3 others seriously injured on Sept. 13, according to officials. The gunman is reportedly in custody.
A gunman opened fire at a Freeman High School in Rockford Washington on Sept. 13 around 10 AM EST, leaving 1 student dead and 3 others with serious injuries. The injured victims — who are minors — were taken to Sacred Heart Hospital for medical care, Brian Schaeffer of the Spokane Fire Department told reporters during an on-site press conference at the school. One person is detained, according to the Spokane Sheriff’s Office official Twitter account. However, it is unclear if that individual is the shooter.
Freeman High School as well as Freeman Middle School and Freeman Elementary school, both located in Spokane County, were all placed on lockdown at the time of the shooting. The Spokane Schools official Twitter account has revealed that the schools are no longer on lockdown and the scene is not active.
The Spokane Valley Firefighter’s official Twitter account said in total, crews from Fire District 8, Fire District 11, Spokane Valley Fire, Spokane Fire, AMR, Life Flight, Spokane Sheriff and WSP all responded to the school shooting.
An alleged student at the school tweeted the below information, where she claimed 4 shots were fired. She also attached a photo, where students can be seen on the floor of a classroom. However, none of the details, including the photo, in her tweet have been confirmed. A photo of Freeman High School is displayed below.
