Four students shot outside Portland High School in Oregon

Four students have been shot and wounded outside a Portland, Oregon high school in what police suspect was a gang-related attack.

Portland police sergeant Pete Simpson said that the youngest victim from Rosemary Anderson high school, Taylor Zimmers, 16, was in critical condition after being shot in the chest. Labraye Franklin, 17, was described as in serious condition as was a 20 year-old male. A 19-year-old female suffered a minor wound when a bullet grazed her foot and she was treated at the scene.

The shooting occurred about a block from the school as students spilled out on to the street at the beginning of the lunch hour. Witnesses described hearing five rapid shots and seeing children diving under cars for protection.
