September 13, 2017We're grateful for the service of school staff and first responders working to keep our students safe.

A shooting at a school in the United States has left several people injured, reports say.

Freeman Store says parents are meeting outside in the parking lot by Freeman High School.

Schaeffer said the "threat from the shooter has been eliminated". He did not offer more details on the student who was killed, or on the status of the suspect, whom police took into custody earlier today.

"Due to a reported shooting near Freeman High School, all southside SPS schools are now in lockdown", the tweet said.

Spokane placed all schools in the district on lockdown at about 10:30 a.m. PDT (1730 GMT), following the shooting, but an hour later said on Twitter that it had been lifted.

It was not immediately clear if the slain victim was a student at Freeman High School in Rockford, Washington, Spokane Fire Chief Brian Schaeffer told reporters at a news conference.

Anxious parents rushed to the school in the town of about 500 people near the Idaho border, about 25 miles southeast of Spokane. Multiple ambulances and a Lifeflight helicopter were dispatched to the high school.

"They did a modified lockdown drill yesterday", she said. Family members are with the victims. I am a junior, evacuated from the high school.

This story is developing and will be updated.
