Six shot at high school near Spokane, Washington

(Reuters) – Six people were shot at a high school near Spokane, Washington, on Wednesday, police and local media said.

Officers were responding to a shooting at Freeman High School in Rockford, Washington, said a woman at the Spokane Police Department who declined to say if there had been any injuries or give her name.

The Spokesman-Review newspaper, citing a local hospital spokeswoman, reported that up to six people had been shot.

It was not immediately clear if a suspect had been taken into custody.

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. She tweeted a picture of anxious-looking students sitting on the floor in a classroom.
