PORTLAND - Three teenagers and a 20-year-old man were shot and wounded on Friday outside a Portland, Oregon, alternative high school when a gunman thought to have gang ties opened fire following a dispute, police said.
The suspect, believed to be in his early teens or early 20s, fled the scene with two other males following the shooting less than a block from Rosemary Anderson High School and all three remained at large several hours later, said Pete Simpson of the Portland Police Bureau
A 16-year-old girl who was struck by the gunfire shortly after noon outside the school in north Portland was rushed to a local hospital, where she was listed in critical condition, Simpson said.
A 17-year-old boy and 20-year-old man were in serious condition at the same hospital and a 19-year-old female was treated and released after being grazed in the foot by a bullet.
Simpson said all of the victims were affiliated in some way with Rosemary Anderson and ran to the school following the shooting, where they received initial treatment as it was placed on lockdown.
