Phoenix (AP) - Police say two female students died in a shooting at a high school in a Phoenix suburb.
Glendale Officer Tracey Breeden told reporters Friday that both victims were 15-year-old girls and were shot once. She says authorities are not searching for any suspects and a weapon was found near the bodies.
She did not have any information on the relationship between the girls, who died at the scene. They were found near an administration building.
Breeden says police received a call of a shooting just before 8 a.m. and they were on scene within minutes.
She told parents awaiting word on their kids that "your children are safe."
Two students, both 15-year-old girls, killed in shooting at Phoenix-area high school.
Dozens of worried parents are waiting at a convenience store for word about their kids after police said two teens were killed at a high school in a Phoenix suburb.
Glendale police say there's no active shooter and no more danger at Independence High School. Authorities and school officials have not discussed the conditions of the teens.
The Glendale Union High School District says in a statement on its website that no one can leave or enter the campus until police ensure the school's safety and lift a lockdown.
Parents were directed to locations near the school. Many crowded a nearby Walmart parking lot.
At the convenience store, Cheryl Rice said she was frightened for her 15-year-old daughter but was relieved when the girl called to say she was OK.
