Two Arizona students are dead after an early morning shooting at Independence High School in Glendale.
Police found two 15-year-old female sophomores lying next to each other on campus, each dead of a single gunshot wound, according to ABC15. A weapon was discovered next to them. Circumstances of the shooting are still under investigation and the relationship between the two girls was not immediately clear, says the report.
Glendale police spokeswoman Tracey Breeden told reporters there is no search for an active shooter and the community is not in danger. The school remained on lockdown after the shooting.
Glendale Vice Mayor Ian Hugh called the incident “a horrible tragedy,” while Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey released a statement praying for the families and students.
“As details of this morning’s tragic shooting continue to be released, our hearts remain with the students, educators and families of Independence High School and the entire Glendale community.”
Ducey thanked first responders, police, teachers and school administrators for their “swift response and diligent work” to keep the area safe.
