There is a large police response at Marysville-Pilchuck High School in the Seattle area where students and a teacher have reported that gunshots have been fired.
School officials said there is an emergency situation at the school and the building was locked down.
Three students and a teacher reported hearing gunshots and KIRO 7 has received emails and texts from parents of students and teachers at the school.
"Our son just called to let us know that his kids are ok - his son was about 50 feet from the shooter - a student that he knows. Our grandson and his friends ran away - jumped a fence and went to a home in the area. He didn't know about any victims but thought there was at least one," said Tom Hopper, who emailed KIRO 7.
Video from Chopper 7 showed students evacuating the building and multiple police, fire and medic units.
Casey Blakley and his daughter were driving by the school when they say the huge police response.
“About every 30 seconds school I had to pull over because there were so many cops and paramedics going by,” he said. “The road was blocked off from about two blocks away
“There were a bunch of kids on the next block that apparently fled the school. They were all huddled together talking to cars that drove by.”
The Marysville School District released the following statement:
"The Marysville Pilchuck High School is currently in lock down due to an emergency situation. Police and emergency services have responded. The Marysville School District lock down procedures will remain in effect at Marysville Pilchuck until further notice from law enforcement. We will continue to forward communication in cooperation with law enforcement."

British television personality Katie Hopkins is stirring up controversy after gaining 50 pounds on purpose to prove that “fatties are lazy.”
According to Today, Hopkins was tired of hearing from others that she was “lucky to be skinny” and wanted to prove that there are no excuses for being fat.
Hopkins consumed 6,500 calories daily to gain the 50 pounds. She recorded what she ate in a journal. Her diet was heavy on carbs and fat, featuring burgers, fries and cupcakes.
The experiment made an emotional impact on Hopkins. She said she cried about how much she was eating and how disgusting she felt. She also says she understands better how difficult it is to do everyday tasks when you are carrying around excess weight.
Hopkins now is trying to lose the 50 pounds in three months. She is consuming a strict diet and has increased her exercise regimen to prove to others that being thin is as “simple as eating less and moving more.” According to Today, she still has 35 pounds to lose over the next two months.
This is not the first time that Hopkins has made waves on the sensitive subject of weight. She once said that she doesn’t believe people can be “fat and happy,” claiming that it was a “cop out.”Fri, 24 Oct 2014 13:47:18 -0400
Evenflo is recalling more than 202,000 rear-facing infant seats because the buckles can become difficult to unlatch.
The recall affects Embrace 35/9999 models with an AmSafe QT1 buckle. Documents posted by U.S. safety regulators say that if the buckles don't release easily, it may be difficult to get a child out of the seat in an emergency.
The affected seats were made at various times from December 2011 through May 2013.
Not all Embrace 35 models are covered by the recall. For others, the company will provide replacement buckles if requested by customers.
The recall comes after an investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Owners with questions can call Evenflo at (800) 490-7591.
