Four other people were transported to area hospitals, Dr. Joanne Roberts of Providence Regional Medical Center, said in a televised briefing. Three of those people suffered gunshot wounds to the head, according to Roberts.

Cmdr. Robb Lamoureaux of the Marysville, Wash., police department said in a televised briefing that police conducted a sweep of classrooms at Marysville Pilchuck High School to ensure all students were out of the complex.
