KPTV reports the school is still on lockdown as officials search the building. The outlet reports police have yet to determine a motive, and "haven't said whether he is a student at the school."

KGW-TV reports police responded to a call from Reynolds High School just after 8 a.m. A spokesperson for the sheriff's office told the outlet, "the response [was] for an active shooter."

At this point, the number of injuries remains unclear, but officials are working quickly to reunite parents with their children.

The sheriff's department has asked parents to come to a local Fred Meyer department store to pick up their children. Officials are requesting all other people stay out of the area. 

KOIN reports dozens of parents and guardians have lined up, waiting to be reunited.
