Two Students Reportedly Wounded in Shooting Outside Pierce County High School

Two Students Reportedly Wounded in Shooting Outside Pierce County High School

Two students have reportedly been shot at a USA high school.

The Pierce County Sheriff's Office released video Tuesday of a green Chevy Impala that they say fled the scene of a shooting near Graham-Kapowsin High School. The other student was found inside a locker room. That's according to officials with the Pierce County Sheriff's office. But before the fight started, someone in the getaway auto fired multiple rounds, hitting the two students.

Troyer said they believe the two victims were students of the high school, but the shooters were not.

The shooting happened about 2:30 p.m. near the school, 22100 108th Ave.

Troyer told reporters that the 17-year-old boy who was taken into custody in connection to the shooting is a student at Graham-Kapowsin, but the two wanted suspects are believed to be from outside the area.

Both wounded students were transported to Tacoma General Hospital, police said.

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

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

John Gutierrez, 41, who was driving to pick up his son from the school, said he noticed the sheriff's deputies on his way to the school and added he was asked to leave the parking lot when he arrived.

The school district also tweeted that their thoughts and prayers are with everyone who were involved in the shooting and added they were proud of how their students and staff reacted to the incident.

As parents rushed to a reunification site set up at Frontier Middle School, deputies conducted multiple security sweeps of the schools, to make sure the suspects had left the area.

Deputies were securing the campus, and said the students in lockdown were safe.

The Pierce County Sheriff's Office appealed for the public's help in identifying the two wanted suspects and tweeted that Crime Stoppers was offering a reward for information.
