Sheriff's deputies in Washington state are searching for two teenagers suspected of shooting a pair of male students near a high school in the small city of Graham on Tuesday.

Four schools were on lockdown as deputies investigated the shooting: Graham-Kapowsin High, Frontier Middle School, Nelson Elementary School and Graham Elementary School, according to Bethel School District spokesman Douglas Boyles.

Officials say one student was found in the parking lot by the school football field. The two were transported to Tacoma General Hospital.

In a tweet sent out early Wednesday, the sheriff's office said gunfire erupted during a fight near school grounds, and that the suspects, who were said to be black males, fled the scene in a green Chevy Impala. Troyer said one of the two victims may have been a bystander who had no knowledge of the fight. That's according to officials with the Pierce County Sheriff's office.

Police responded to reports Tuesday regarding multiple shots being fired in a school in Pierce County, Washington, and speculated it might be a gang-related activity.

The shooting occurred just after 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday outside of the school. "All remaining students on campus are secured with deputies, considered safe as security sweep is ongoing".

"It is scary, but I know my son is OK". Gutierrez also revealed how he got a text from his son saying he can't leave the school as they are going on lockdown. Graham-Kapowsin and the other schools that were put on lockdown will follow a normal schedule on Wednesday, which is a scheduled late start for the Bethel School District.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and students involved with this shooting today".

The Pierce County Sheriff's Office appealed for the public's help in identifying the two wanted suspects and tweeted that Crime Stoppers was offering a reward for information.
