According to authorities, there has been another school shooting, this one outside of Portland.

Sue Strickland of the Troutdale Police Department reports that around 8 a.m. PST, Reynolds High School became the latest school to be the setting of violence.

Nearly 100 sheriff's deputies and police, including two SWAT teams, responded to the shooting.

According to local news station KOIN, a suspect is now dead after shots were fired at the Oregon high school.

Luckily, so far only injuries have been reported from the incident, no deaths. A LifeFlight helicopter was spotted landing by the school.

The high school is now on lockdown as detectives and FBI are on the scene. Students are still being evacuated, but it seems for now that the threat is over.

Update:

Police have now confirmed that one student was killed in the shooting, in addition to the shooter.

Although the gunman is confirmed dead, the school remains in lockdown. Dozens of terrified parents continue to wait outside as the evacuation continues.

Four Dead, Hundreds Of Students Lost At Sea In Devastating South Korean Shipwreck

| Filed under: Sad SadEducational

south korea ship sinking dead rescued

Oh no. This is just too horrible.

Four people are reported dead, and hundreds are still missing after a ferry suddenly sank off the coast of South Korea.

The Sewol was taking a local high school class to an island resort when witnesses reported a loud bump. The ship sank less than two hours after making its first distress call, remarkably - and tragically - quickly.

So far, authorities report that 164 people have been rescued, but another 292 are still missing.

Of those onboard, 325 were students from Seoul's Ansan Danwon High School taking a class trip. It's still unclear whether any students were among the four confirmed dead.

Rescue teams are struggling against bad weather, cold temperatures, and low visibility in an effort to find the remaining passengers. Our prayers are with them.
