Two students were shot outside a Washington state high school on Tuesday and Pierce County sheriff's deputies said they're looking for suspects.

A statement from the Bethel School District said Graham-Kapowsin High School will have extra security on hand Wednesday, as well as additional counselors. "One was in a parking lot of the football field".

The shooting took place at around 2:30 p.m. local time (5:30 p.m. EST), according to a report in an ABC-affiliated television station, KOMO-TV.

The shooters are described as multiple males who left in a green vehicle, possibly a Chevrolet Impala. All three schools were locked down while deputies searched the buildings and grounds.

The Sheriff's Office is asking anyone who recognizes the remaining suspects to call the Sheriff's Office at 253-798-7530 or Crime Stoppers of Tacoma-Pierce County at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Graham-Kapowsin High School is located at 108th Avenue E and Eustis Hunt Road E. The shots were reportedly fired on the Eustis Hunt Road side of the school, and only about ten yards off campus.

Graham Elementary students were released to their buses about 3:10 p.m. After-school activities at Graham-Kapowsin High and Frontier Middle School were canceled. Gutierrez also revealed how he got a text from his son saying he can't leave the school as they are going on lockdown.

Deputies were securing the campus, and said the students in lockdown were safe.

"I was actually kinda calm because we've been trained since really early on to know what to do in these situations", said Graham-Kapowsin ninth-grader James Baker. "I'm just praying for the parents of the other kids", he told The News Tribune, Seattle Times reported.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and students involved with this shooting today".
