The Pierce County Sheriff's Department is reporting that officers are responding to gunshots outside Graham-Kapowsin High School.

One of the victims was found in the parking lot by the football field, Troyer said, and one was found in the school's locker room.

Both students are expected to survive following surgery at Tacoma General Hospital Tuesday afternoon, but it was an incredibly tense afternoon for students, staff, and parents left wondering if their children were in danger. Vehicle is a green Chevrolet Impala, suspects described as multiple black males. The two students who were shot ran back onto the high school grounds before being located by deputies.

The conditions of the wounded students were not immediately known. The shooting may be gang-related, and the suspects aren't believed to be students at the high school.

Pierce County Sheriff's Department is offering a reward for information in the case through Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-TIPS. "All remaining students on campus are secured with deputies, considered safe as security sweep is ongoing".

"Everything is starting to point that way", Troyer said.

Bayern and PSG had already secured qualification from Group B but met at the Allianz Arena with first place still up for grabs. Benfica are yet to pick up a single point and will therefore finish bottom of the group no matter what happens on Tuesday.

Investigators determined that the shooting occurred during a fight just off school grounds on Eustis-Hunt Road East.

Four schools in the district went under lockdown, but Graham Elementary students were recently released to their buses, per the district.

Dave Reichert, United States Rep. R-Auburn, also tweeted, "My prayers are w/ the families of the victims; the students, teachers, & staff at the school; & the community affected".

Students were beginning to be released from school about 4:30 p.m., starting with Frontier Middle School, according to the Bethel School District.

The high school campus is alongside the campuses of Frontier Middle School and Nelson Elementary School.
