Two people were shot and one reportedly died on Friday morning at Independence High School in Glendale, Arizona. Local news reports citing an anonymous source said that one person was killed. Neither of the victim’s identities were revealed as of press time. Multiple reports say that both were teenagers, and the New York Daily News reported that both were sophomore girls. The school has 2,000 students, according to the AP. Shots were reported early on Friday morning.

Early reports indicate that this was an isolated incident and not a mass school shooting, contrary to early speculations on social media. Police have told reporters that the incident was no longer an “active shooter” situation. The school is completely shut down, as are many of the streets in the surrounding neighborhood. Parents were been asked to congregate at the parking lot of a nearby Wall-Mart. “The school and the neighborhood are safe,” according to a statement from the Glendale Police Department.

Fear spread rapidly in part because Arizona has suffered a number of mass shootings in recent years. In 2011, a shooting targeting an event held by Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson killed six people. A shooting at a house party in late January in Glendale killed 3 and inured 2.



Arizona leaders immediately shared condolences on Twitter.
