Police: 3 conscious after shooting outside school

Posted on December 12, 2014 at 4:55 PM
When is the last time you reviewed your district/school safety plan?  Are you really ready if something like this happened under your watch?  It's so easy to push proactive training aside because we are all so busy with the here and now.  Remember, this could happen to you and being ready, well trained, and keeping your wits about you is the very least you can do for your students.  

Slow down and remember what is important.  Pull out that safety plan and review it.  Be the catalyst for a meeting with your district officials to review your plan and update it if necessary.  

In law enforcement, they train to "think" about the worst scenario at least one time per week and then work through your response in your mind's eye.  It's a good tool for school officials as well.  Think about it happening even if it makes you uncomfortable.  Plan out your response...every single detail...it will really help you if that dreadful day ever comes.

PORTLAND, Ore. —

 

A shooter wounded two boys and a girl outside an alternative high school Friday in what may be a gang-related attack, Portland police said.

 

The victims are believed to be students at Rosemary Anderson High School, which serves about 190 at-risk students, Sgt. Pete Simpson said. The three were conscious and breathing when they were taken to the hospital, he said.

 

The shooting was reported after noon and happened at a corner outside the school, Simpson said. The assailant fled, and the students ran back to the school for help, he said.

 

Officers don't know whether the shooter was alone or with others, but Simpson says preliminary information suggests it's gang-related.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rosemary Anderson High School is an alternative school that serves at-risk students who were expelled or dropped out, are homeless or single parents. According to the school's website, 190 students annually are enrolled at the north Portland location. The school also has a second location in Gresham.

 

Parents have been summoned to the school, and a nearby high school and community college were put on lockdown.

 

Portland was the scene of a school shooting in June. A freshman killed one student and then himself.

 

Jared Padgett, 15, opened fire June 10 after arriving at his high school east of Portland heavily armed. He killed 14-year-old Emilio Hoffman in the boy's locker room at Reynolds High School in Troutdale and another bullet grazed physical education teacher Todd Rispler. When confronted by officers, Padgett went into a bathroom and died from a self-inflicted gunshot, police said.
