Student Victims Of Shooting Near Graham, Washington High School Expected To Survive

Police are looking for this person who they say is a suspect in the shooting outside Graham Kapowsin High School Dec. 5 2017

The two students who were shot ran back onto the high school grounds before being located by deputies.

Two Graham-Kapowsin High School students were wounded Tuesday afternoon in a shooting near the school that apparently stemmed from a gang-related fight. However, there were no signs of the shooters being on campus.

KOMO reports that a getaway vehicle has also been located in connection with Tuesday's shooting at Graham-Kapowsin High School.

Troyer said authorities were not able to speak with the victims before they were transported to the hospital, but that they have a good idea of the events leading up to the shooting and are investigating motive.

A woman who claimed to be the mother of one of the victims wrote on Facebook that her son was shot four times and insisted that her son was not a gang member, 'but an innocent bystander along with the other boy that was shot'.

There was no immediate word on the students' conditions, but both were sent to local hospitals. Frontier Middle School, Graham Elementary School and Nelson Elementary School were also locked down during the initial investigation.




Pierce County Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer said the shooting happened outside the school at the scene of a prearranged fight.

Deputies are seeking a green sedan, possibly a Chevrolet Impala, with multiple black males inside that may have fled the school after the shooting, Troyer said. Deputies were actively sweeping the school grounds, but said there was no indication the suspects were on campus.

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

"I knew he wasn't one of the kids that was shot, and I pray for them and their parents".

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

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and students involved with this shooting today".
