Students at Graham Elementary School were been released to their buses with staff supervision, the Times reported.

"It appears there's a possibility that these two may have some gang ties and that these were other gang members from somewhere else besides this area that may have fired the shots".

U.S. Rep. Dave Reichert, R-Auburn, tweeted the following statement: "My prayers are w/ the families of the victims; the students, teachers, & staff at the school; & the community affected".
