School shooting reported near Seattle

CNN

(CNN) - Investigators are responding Friday to a reported school shooting in Marysville, Washington, just north of Seattle, said Inci Yarkut, a spokeswoman for the Washington State Patrol.

CNN affiliate KIRO-TV in Seattle showed police cars and ambulances outside the school. Aerial shots showed students running out of the buildings, many with their arms up.

The Marysville Pilchuck High School is on lockdown "due to an emergency situation," the school district said in a statement, according to KIRO.

Medeana Johnson, the mother of a boy who is a junior at the school, told KIRO that her son said a boy opened fire near the cafeteria. She said her son told her he was supposed to be in the cafeteria but stopped to chat with someone and so didn't go in.
