    WA - Samnang Kok, 17, shot to death at Tacoma high school, 3 Jan 2007

    TACOMA, Wash. -- Tacoma police said one person was shot this morning inside Foss High School.



    School officials told KOMO-TV one student was transported to a hospital, but they had no details about his or her injuries.



    "People came out of the classrooms and they heard something that sounded like fireworks and they just saw the kid laying on the ground," one female student told KOMO-TV. "We just got into the closest classroom we could find and just stayed there until we heard anything."

    Cops: Students Evacuated After Person Shot in Washington State High School

    TACOMA, Wash. One person was shot Wednesday morning at a Tacoma public high school, police said as they evacuated students from the building.

    It wasn't immediately clear what had happened or if the shooter was still inside the building, said police spokesman Mark Fulghum.

    He said police responded to Foss High School shortly after the 7:30 a.m. shooting and were evacuating students. Some students have contacted a local radio station and said they are in lockdown in the school's gym.

    Oh my; I have a friend who lives in Tacoma with a grandson in High School. I'm sure they have more than one High School but now I'm worried. WHY does this world have to be so crazy?!

    Fox's website says that the student was killed, but didn't offer any more details, as it was "breaking."

    Fox News reported that the student died on the way to the hospital. I think they said the student was 16 years old.

    Also said there was supposed to be a news conference upcoming.

    Sheromom, here's hoping your friend's grandson is okay.

    Fox News Channel just reported that the shooter, who had been on the run, is now in custody.

    I just heard this on the news. It makes me afraid to even send my daughter to school every morning.

    It's so so sad.

    I know the feeling. This was evidently outside the door, tho' so even a metal detector would do no good? I wonder if there were any security officers at that school.

    There's always a squad car parked outside my son's middle school. This morning I asked him if there was really a cop there or just a car and he assured me that there is indeed a cop attached to the car. I couldn't imagine dropping him off only to hear that there had been a shooting. Something needs to be done about these school shootings - and fast. This is tragic.

    Thanks, Liz; he actually goes to a different high school. This is way too close to home for me! Why are even the children so violent nowadays? I can't understand it!

    Surprise Surprise.

    And we're 3 days in to the new year.

    Wonder how many more kids will get killed before the States chooses to look at it's gun laws.

    I agree.. I don't know why we are letting this get so out of hand..

    THe 17 year old victim was a father? Lordy. I'd be afraid to send my kids to school for that fact alone! It's not a safe place for them to learn anything anymore.

    I am all for training and arming teachers and I'm not kidding. If this sparks a gun law hub bub I'm going to be ticked.
