Two students shot outside Graham-Kapowsin High School, sheriff's office says

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

Two suspects in Tuesday's shooting outside Graham-Kapowsin High School were in custody Wednesday, and one more unidentified suspect was on the loose, the Pierce County Sheriff's Department said.

Doug Boyles, a spokesperson from the Bethel School District, confirmed that two victims are Graham-Kapowsin High School students, but didn't have more information.

The high school was put in a lockdown that lasted for almost four hours before it was lifted at 6:15 p.m. and school buses began taking students home.

The Pierce County sheriff's office said one student was found in the parking lot by the football field and another was found in a locker room.

All other students were safe and being reunited with family. But before the fight started, someone in the getaway vehicle fired multiple rounds, hitting the two students.

Both victims, aged 16, were taken to Tacoma General Hospital with gunshot wounds and were expected to survive after undergoing emergency surgeries.

Troyer told the (Tacoma) News Tribune that the first suspect arrested is a student at the high school but that the other two suspects are not believed to be from the area.

Witnesses described the suspects as black males who reportedly fled the scene in a green automobile, possibly a Chevrolet Impala or similar in appearance.

Pierce County Sheriff posted on their Facebook page that 911 callers reported a fight near the school grounds on Eustis Hunt Road East right before shots were heard. All three schools were locked down while deputies searched the buildings and grounds.

Troyer said officials believe the shooting took place off school property and the wounded students ran back onto the campus. "We are confident that with your help we will bring swift justice and peace of mind for the hundreds of students and parents affected by today's shooting".

Students were beginning to be released from school about 4:30 p.m., starting with Frontier Middle School, according to the Bethel School District.
