(AP) Police rushed to a Portland, Oregon-area high school Tuesday morning following reports of gunfire.

TV news showed students being led from Reynolds High School in Troutdale with their hands on their heads.

Shots were reported shortly after 8 a.m. Tuesday.

Students inside the school were texting with their parents. A parent interviewed on TV said she had heard from her son inside the school that he was OK, but she was worried.
