Suspect Arrested In Portland High School Shooting
A suspect has been arrested in what police was a gang-related shooting.
Witnesses told authorities there may have been a dispute Friday outside Rosemary Anderson High School just before the shooting occurred at a street corner. The victims are students or in affiliated job training programs.
The assailant and two other people fled, and the injured trio went to the school for help, police said. A 16-year-old girl was critically wounded, and a 17-year-old boy and 20-year-old man were hospitalized in fair condition. Another girl was grazed by a bullet.
A student, Oliviann Danley, 16, told The Oregonian she saw a boy run into the school and yell, “Oh my God, did I just get shot?”
Hours later, authorities said they stopped the suspect’s vehicle around 1:30 a.m. and arrested a 22-year-old man. A handgun was found in the vehicle…
There was another school shooting in the Portland area in June, but it was not gang-related. A freshman killed another boy in a locker room, and a bullet grazed a teacher before the shooter went into a bathroom and died from a self-inflicted gunshot, police said.[su_csky_ad]
