(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. (Read more school shooting stories.)
