One dead and three injured in school shooting

Freeman High School is on lockdown

A suspect is in custody following a shooting at Freeman High School south of Spokane in Rockford on Wednesday morning.

"You never think about something happening like this at a small school", said Cheryl Moser, the parent of a freshman at the high school, the Review reported. "The shooter is in the back seat of a patrol auto right now", he said on the scene, shortly before noon. He took out the first weapon and tried to fire it, but it jammed.

Knezovich declined to identify the suspect or discuss what may have motivated the gun violence in detail but said: "It sounds like a case of a bullying-type of situation".

Police say he fired four shots, killing one student who attempted to stop him, and injuring three others. They are expected to survive, though one patient will require surgery later Wednesday afternoon, trauma surgeon Mike Moore said during a press conference.

Police have not identified the teen suspect in Wednesday's shooting at Freeman High School, but we are learning more about him from the students.

The Freeman area is agricultural, with seed, hay and grain as major crops.

The sign for Freeman High School in Rockford, Wash., is seen outside the campus, September 13, 2017.
