NOW: Student dead after shooting at Washington state school


SPOKANE, Wash. - A student was shot and killed Wednesday at a high school near Spokane, Washington.

Police say the suspect in custody but have not confirmed the identity of that suspect or whether he is a student.

According to KXLY in Spokane, the suspect entered the school and tried to shoot one gun, which jammed. He then pulled out another weapon and shot and killed a student who tried to stop him.

He allegedly shot three other students, who were taken to a nearby hospital. The hospital says all of them are doing well and are expected to survive. One of the teens will undergo surgery Wednesday.
