The incident took place early Friday morning at Marysville-Pilchuck High School in Washington.

A shooting at Washington state's Marysville-Pilchuck High School on Friday morning (October 24), has left at least 2 dead including the gunman, and up to four other students injured.

According to CNN, a student who fired off several rounds near the school's cafeteria died after turning the gun on himself.

Marysville police spokesman Robert Lamoureux says police in the town north of Seattle "are confident that there is only one single shooter," without giving further details on the injured students. But law enforcement sources told CNN that two people are dead and, of the four that have been wounded, one was serious and three were in critical condition.

The Marysville-Pilchuck High School is currently in lockdown due to an emergency situation," the school district revealed in a statement. "Police and emergency services have responded.
