Authorities in Oregon say a gunman entered a high school outside of Portland Tuesday morning and fatally shot a student before he was killed himself.

The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office said in a statement that the situation is stabilized at Reynolds High School in Troutdale.

Scott Anderson, the chief of the Troutdale Police Department, confirmed the deaths and called the events a “tragic day” for the community. Authorities did not say how the shooter died.

The sheriff’s office said at 8:07 a.m. local time Tuesday, police responded to the reports of shots fired at the school.

Students told The Associated Press they were informed over the intercom that there was a lockdown and to quietly go to their classrooms.

The wife of a vice principal at the school told KPTV that she received a text message from her husband that said there was an active shooter.
