  • Two Students Reportedly Wounded in Shooting Outside Pierce County High School

The Pierce County Sheriff's Department reported that two students were shot at Graham-Kapowsin High School in Graham.

John Gutierrez, 41 of Frederickson, to The News-Tribune of Tacoma that he was on his way to the Graham-Kapowsin High to get his son, who had finished with his after-school drama program.

One student was found near the school's football field, the other in a locker room, according to the local Sheriff's office.

Two students, according to the Pierce County Sheriff's Office, were shot. But before the fight started, someone in the getaway auto fired multiple rounds, hitting the two students.

The shooting occurred just after 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday outside of the school.

Both victims, aged 16, were taken to Tacoma General Hospital with gunshot wounds and were expected to survive after undergoing emergency surgeries.

John Gutierrez, 41, who was driving to pick up his son from the school, said he noticed the sheriff's deputies on his way to the school and added he was asked to leave the parking lot when he arrived. Authorities believe the shooting took place off campus and students ran back to the high school after being shot at.

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.

Graham-Kapowsin, Frontier Middle School and Nelson and Graham elementary schools were all put on lockdown on Tuesday afternoon, and parents in the district were sent an email notification about the incident.

A spokesperson for Bethel school district said schools in the area were on lockdown.

In a prepared statement, district officials offered their " thoughts and prayers" for the students involved in the shooting and their families, and gave reassurance that students on the campus "are safe".

The Pierce County Sheriff's Department is offering a reward for information in the case through Crime Stoppers.
