 This has been on the news all day here.

Four injured, one of them grazed by the bullet.  Three suspects took off, on foot, one of them being the shooter, outside the alternative high school.

They are thinking it may be gang related but as of yet, not much info that I have heard.

(CNN) -- A gang task force arrested a man early Saturday in connection with a shooting near a high school in Portland, Oregon, police said.

A gunman had opened fire Friday on four people near Rosemary Anderson High School, then fled on foot with two other men, according to witnesses.

Officers from the Portland Police Gang Enforcement Team stopped a vehicle overnight and arrested a 22-year-old man, police said in a statement. They also recovered a handgun from the vehicle.

Police have not yet released the arrested man's name.

The wounded

When medical technicians arrived at Rosemary Anderson High School, all of the wounded were conscious and talking, police said in a statement. Three of the victims were taken to a local hospital.

One victim, Taylor Zimmers, 16, is in critical condition. Two more, David Jackson-Liday, 20, and Labraye Franklin, 17, are in fair condition.

A 17-year-old girl suffered a grazing wound in the shooting and was treated on the scene.

"All four gunshot victims are affiliated with the school," police said.

The shooting

The shooting happened around 12:15 p.m. local time not far from the campus in north Portland, police spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson said.

After being shot, at least three victims ran inside a school building, a caller told authorities.

"I saw him stumble into the school holding his stomach, he said my brother's name and then he fell on the ground," one student told CNN affiliate KATU.

The suspect may be affiliated with a gang but it's not known if the shooting was gang-related or "a personal beef," Simpson said. An argument may have preceded the shooting.

The suspect was described as a male in his late teens or early 20s and he was accompanied by two other males in the same age range.

They left the area quickly on foot, Simpson said.

He said the police department's gang task force was investigating. Agents from the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives also arrived to assist, he said.

The Portland metro area experienced a deadly school shooting six months prior, when two students died and a teacher was injured in the nearby town of Troutdale.

Freshman Jared Padgett opened fire in the boys locker room at the Reynolds High School gym on June 10, killing fellow freshman Emilio Hoffman and wounding teacher Todd Rispler. Padgett was later found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.


That's sad :(
