The student killed was 14 year old Emilio Hoffman.

 

The shooting happened around 8 A.M. Tuesday morning at Reynolds High School in Troutdale, east of Portland.

 

Students heard the gunfire, but weren't sure what it was.

 

"We thought it was firecrackers.  We went to the weight room and barricaded the door."

 

After SWAT teams searched the school and evacuated students, they found another student with a gun.

 

"Not related to the incident, but during evacuation,  a gun was found on one person and that person was taken into custody.

 

President Obama weighed in on the fatal school shooting.
