Three people were taken to a hospital after a shooting at Rosemary Anderson High School in Portland, Dec. 12, 2014 (KOIN 6 News)

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — Three student-age people were shot outside a North Portland school in what police said may be a gang-related shooting.

The shooter was never inside Rosemary Anderson High School, PPB Sgt. Pete Simpson told the media in an impromptu press conference, and the shooting took place outside on Killingsworth Court. The school is located at 717 North Killingsworth Court.

Two males and one female were shot, Simpson said, and they ran into the school after being shot. He did not have any word on their condition, but said they were conscious and breathing when they were taken to the hospital.

The gang task force is at the school, and administration at the school is being briefed.

Their website describes Rosemary Anderson High School as “Portland OIC’s community-based alternative high school, in operation since 1983, and accredited by the NW Accreditation Commission.”

By 1:15 p.m., the school had been secured and the students released. They were sent to the Jefferson High School athletic field to wait for their parents to pick them up.

Jefferson High School and Portland Community College are currently in lockdown due to this ongoing critical incident.

Officials want parents of Rosemary Anderson High School students should respond to Killingsworth Court and Kerby Avenue.
