Students shot near Graham-Kapowsin High School

Police respond to school shooting in Graham Washington

Two suspects have been arrested following the shooting of two students outside a high school in Graham, Washington.

A statement from the Bethel School District said Graham-Kapowsin High School will have extra security on hand Wednesday, as well as additional counselors. The victims ran to the high school after being shot.

As of Wednesday morning, two suspects were in custody and officials were still searching for a third according to the sheriff's office.

"We are confident there are no shooters at the school or on the school grounds", sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer said about 3:45 p.m.

Troyer also clarified that it appears the shooting happened across the street from the school, about 30 to 40 yards away and over a fence.


Both students are expected to survive following surgery at Tacoma General Hospital Tuesday afternoon, but it was an incredibly tense afternoon for students, staff, and parents left wondering if their children were in danger.

The sheriff's office said they are looking for multiple male suspects who fled in a green vehicle, possibly a Chevy Impala. One student was found near the football field and another in a locker room, reports say.

John Gutierrez, 41, who was driving to pick up his son from the school, said he noticed the sheriff's deputies on his way to the school and added he was asked to leave the parking lot when he arrived. But three other nearby schools were locked down as a precaution.

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. The Bethel School District confirmed via a tweet the victims shot were indeed students from the school. We have been assured that students still on campus are safe.

The Pierce County Sheriff's Office appealed for the public's help in identifying the two wanted suspects and tweeted that Crime Stoppers was offering a reward for information.
