Three people were reportedly transported to a hospital after a shooting occurred outside a Portland, Oregon, high school Friday afternoon.

Police did not release information on whether all three people were shot, but Oregon Live said early reports were a 17-year-old male was shot in the back and a female was shot in the chest.

Sgt. Pete Simpson indicated no one was killed. "Obviously were thankful we don't have any loss of life," he said, according to Oregon Live.

The shooting reportedly occurred outside Rosemary Anderson High School, and police could not confirm whether the victims were students or not.

Police did say the incident may be connected to a gang, Oregon Live said.

The high school serves at-risk students who were expelled or dropped out of other high schools. About 130 students attend the school.

The Portland Police Department tweeted that the scene was secure and the shooter had left.


Police said at an impromptu press conference that the shooter was never inside the school.

Oregon Live reported that police received a call after the Rosemary Anderson shooting that there would be another shooting at a different high school, but did not find the threat credible.
