EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Police said Friday there has been a shooting inside an Oregon middle school and all students and teachers are safe.

Eugene Police Department Lt. Jennifer Bills said all students were locked in their classrooms and no one was being allowed into the building.

Bills said the incident at Cascade Middle School in Eugene began with a dispute outside the school.

It wasn't clear who was involved in the dispute. She said the suspect had been shot.

Bills says no one would be allowed into the school until the lockdown is lifted.

Police are asking parents to stay away from the school as the investigation continues.

One article states a man was shot outside the school and another inside. In their haste to get the story out they didn't do any apparent fact checking.
