Armed man killed at Oregon school
EUGENE, Ore. — Police shot and killed a man who showed up Friday with a gun at an Oregon middle school amid a custody dispute, authorities said. No one else was injured.
The man had been escorted from Cascade Middle School in Eugene when he began struggling and pulled a gun, police Lt. Jennifer Bills told reporters. She initially said the shooting was inside the school.
Students were locked in classrooms, and the school was locked down for four hours.
By afternoon, officers were escorting small groups of children to a nearby church where parents had gathered.
Yellow crime scene tape surrounded the school’s main parking lot and a yellow tarp covered the suspect’s body just a few feet from an entrance.
