ROCK­FORD, Wash. -- A stu­dent who opened fire in a hall­way at a Wash­ing­ton state high school killed a class­mate who con­fronted him Wed­nes­day and wounded three others be­fore be­ing stopped by a staff mem­ber, au­thor­i­ties said.

The sus­pect, who a class­mate de­scribed as be­ing ob­sessed with pre­vi­ous school shoot­ings, was taken into cus­tody. The wounded vic­tims were ex­pected to sur­vive, of­fi­cials said.

The shooter brought two weapons to Free­man High School in Rock­ford, south of Spokane, but the first one he tried to fire jammed, Spokane County Sher­iff Ozzie Kne­zovich told re­porters.

"He went to his next weapon," Kzen­ovich said. "A stu­dent walked up to him, en­gaged him, and that stu­dent was shot. That stu­dent did not sur­vive."
