‘Lock-in’ at 3 Oregon schools after off-campus shooting

The Associated Press

GRESHAM, Ore. — The Reynolds School District took precautionary measures on the first day of school after a person was shot off campus.

District spokeswoman Andrea Watson says Alder, Davis and Hartley elementary schools were placed in “lock-in” status Thursday because of Gresham police activity. That meant nobody could enter the building and those inside had to stay.

A Gresham police spokesman texted that a man was shot at the intersection of 190th Avenue and Yamhill Street, and the lock-in was just a precaution.

At the end of the district’s school year in June, 14-year-old Emilio Hoffman was fatally shot by a classmate at Reynolds High School in Troutdale.
