Someone opened fire on a group of people outside an alternative high school just after noon Friday, leaving three people hospitalized in what authorities believe to be a gang-related attack, Portland police said.
The victims are students at Rosemary Anderson High School or in job-training programs, Police Sgt. Pete Simpson said. A girl, 16, was in critical condition; two males - 17 and 20 - were in serious condition. A woman, 19, was grazed but not hospitalized. The assailant fled. A nearby school and community college were put on lockdown. Anderson High serves 190 students who were expelled or dropped out, or who are homeless or single parents.
