WA state government officials release statements about Freeman High School shooting

One student was killed in a shooting at Freeman High School near Spokane, Washington, Fire Chief Brian Schaeffer said at a news conference.

Sacred Heart Hospital confirmed there were three patients in stable condition there, with reports from local media of up to six injured in total.

Their injuries are not known. Authorities say the suspect was in custody.

In addition to the Freeman school district, the Central Valley and Mead districts also were on lockdown due to the shooting, KHQ reported. Police have not said how long the shooting lasted or how many shots were fired by the gunman.

A Twitter user named Christina identified herself as a junior at the high school and said she had been evacuated following at least four shots.

Anxious parents rushed to the school in the town of about 500 people near the Idaho border, about 25 miles southeast of Spokane.

Freeman High is located south of Spokane in eastern Washington state.

The lockdown at Spokane Public Schools has been lifted.

Classes were about to begin because it's a "late start" day, Baxter said.

An automated warning that was reportedly repeating on law enforcement radio channels said, "Freeman High School".

The shooting was reported at Freeman High School in Rockford on Wednesday.

This story is developing and will be updated.
