Annie Baxter, whose two daughters attend Freeman Middle School across the street from the high school, told The Spokesman-Review that children were running into buildings when she pulled up to the school area about 10:15 a.m.
She said classes were about to begin because it's a "late start" day.

All schools in the Spokane district were placed on lockdown as a precautionary measure, which was lifted just before 11:30 a.m.
Spokane County Sheriff's Office deputies are going floor by floor, room to room to search the high school, which has now been cleared.

Governor Jay Inslee released a statement on the shooting, calling the incident "heartbreaking" and pledging support from the Washington State Patrol and state agencies.

"This morning’s shooting at Freeman High School is heartbreaking. All Washingtonians are thinking of the victims and their families, and are grateful for the service of school staff and first responders working to keep our students safe.

"As Spokane County officials continue their investigation to get the answers to the questions so many of us have during these unthinkable tragedies, the Washington State Patrol and all state agencies will do whatever we can to help provide support and comfort in the days and weeks to come."
