(Newser) – A lone gunman and a student are dead in a school shooting this morning at a high school about 12 miles outside Portland, Ore. The teen opened fire at Reynolds High School with a rifle while classes were in session about 8am, reports AP. He killed one student and then himself and was found in a school bathroom, authorities say. A teacher was injured in the incident and was treated at the scene. The shooter has not been identified, but CNN reports that he was a student at the school. Police haven't speculated about a motive.

"Oregon hurts as we try to make sense of a senseless act of violence," said Gov. John Kitzhaber in a statement.

Not much info, probably a spoiled brat off his meds mad about something not given to him.

It's OK. A kid died, but the gun nuts get to feel like they have big penises.
