Two teens shot at high school in Phoenix suburb, police say | Reuters

PHOENIX Two teenagers were shot at a high school in a Phoenix suburb on Friday, sending the school into lockdown, but there was no ongoing threat to the campus or surrounding neighborhood, police said.

Local television station ABC15, citing unnamed sources, reported that one person had died in the incident at Independence High School in Glendale, Arizona, but police could not immediately confirm the report.

The incident occurred in an isolated area of the school campus, Glendale police Sergeant David Vidaure said in a statement.

ABC15 showed footage of more than 100 parents gathered in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart, where police and school officials directed them to wait for their children.

It was not immediately clear if a suspect was in custody or was one of those shot.

ABC15 showed aerial footage of the hexagon-shaped high school, with its sports field empty and the street in front of the campus shut down.

Independence High has roughly 2,000 students, school district representative Sara Clawson said. She could not confirm if the two teens shot were students at the school.
