UPDATE, 4:25 p.m. |  At a news conference Friday afternoon, police said three people were hospitalized after the shooting, all of them affiliated with the school.

A 16-year-old girl is in critical condition, and two males — one age 17 and the other 20 — are in serious condition.

Police say a fourth person — a 19-year-old woman — was grazed by a bullet but not hospitalized.

Police say the  shooting may have been preceded by an argument, and the shooter was accompanied by two others when he ran from the scene.

ORIGINAL POST | PORTLAND — Police say there are at least two victims in a shooting at a Portland high school.
