Earlier this morning at around 10:45 residents near a Snohomish, WA high school were surprised to see police, ambulance and helicopters rushing towards the high school.
Sarah Graham a resident who lives across from the high school told Huffington Post:
I heard helicopters and sirens and screaming. It’s just shock. You don’t think it’s going to happen close to home, especially where you went to school and you have friends.
Students attending Marysville-Pilchuck High School were put on lock down and then evacuated following a shooting that reportedly ocurred in the school cafeteria.
Shooter confirmed dead, other details still emerging
Police told The Seattle Times that two students are reported dead, including the shooter, who has been confirmed to have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. The other student reported to have died is unidentified. Three students are also reported to have been wounded.
Marysville Police Tweeted:
