TROUTDALE -- Police responded shortly after 8 a.m. to a report of shots fired at Reynolds High School. Police confirmed about 9:20 a.m. that a shooter in the incident was dead.

At 10 a.m., police confirmed that one student had also been killed. The student's name and gender have not been released.

SWAT teams were working their way through the school, releasing students from classrooms who are leaving with their hands over their heads.

Parents have been told the go to the Wood Village Fred Meyer where students will be sent by bus. This may take until noon.

LIfeflight landed near the school and staged for some time before leaving without a patient.

A number of emergency vehicles  staged near the school. A significant number of officers  arrived and surround the school. A Multnomah County sheriff's office spokesman confirmed the response was for an active shooter.

A student tweeted that the school was in lockdown and a number of police cars have rolled up. A second student has tweeted that she heard gunfire. A third reported a police officer racing towards the school's gymnasium.

A parent, Dawn, told KGW that her son Josiah was safe, but knew nothing of the situation.

"I just heard he was okay but he doesn't know what's going on. I just want to see him to make sure he's okay. To personally see him. I'm scared. I just don't know what to do. I didn't know where to go. I just came here. Some people got texts. Some didn't. So we just wait."

Later in the morning, she learned her son was safe and standing in a parking lot awaiting what to do next. "He sounded like a 15-year-old."
