  • The Pierce County Sheriff's Department reported that two students were shot at Graham Kapowsin High School in Graham. One student was found near the football field and another in a locker room reports say

One suspect is in custody, but Pierce County Sheriff's Deputies are looking for two more suspects involved in Tuesday's shooting near Graham-Kapowsin High School which left two students injured.

John Gutierrez, 41 of Frederickson, to The News-Tribune of Tacoma that he was on his way to the Graham-Kapowsin High to get his son, who had finished with his after-school drama program.

After deeming the campus secure, the sheriff's department and Bethel School District allowed students to be released. "We are following direction from the Pierce County Sheriff's Department and are relying on them for additional information at this point". But before the fight started, someone in the getaway vehicle fired multiple rounds, hitting the two students.

Multiple officers responded from multiple agencies, Troyer said, and no one other than the two students were hurt.

Pierce County Sheriff's Department spokesman Ed Troyer said it was not believed the suspects were from the area.

The shooting in Graham followed a fight on school grounds, according to the Pierce County Sheriff's Office.

In a tweet sent out early Wednesday, the sheriff's office said gunfire erupted during a fight near school grounds, and that the suspects, who were said to be black males, fled the scene in a green Chevy Impala.

Graham-Kapowsin High School is located at 108th Avenue E and Eustis Hunt Road E. The shots were reportedly fired on the Eustis Hunt Road side of the school, and only about ten yards off campus.

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

The two victims, both males, ran back to the campus after being shot, Troyer said.

A spokesperson for Bethel school district said schools in the area were on lockdown. This is a scary situation and we are proud of how our staff, students and families have been and are still reacting to it.
