Oklahoma City firefighters continue to investigate how a large home caught fire early Tuesday morning.
The 4,000 square foot home caught fire just before 5:30 Tuesday morning near SE 149th and South Choctaw road. The owner was fortunately out of town when the fire started but a neighbor spotted the flames and called it in.
The home is situated in a secluded and wooded area, both of which caused problems for the firefighters.
"We did have some issues of water in the area. We didn't have any hydrant so we had to settle in our water and asked for another tankard to get that operation started. Once we did that things went pretty smoothly," Oklahoma City Battalion Chief Tony Davis said.
A Republican state representative from Oklahoma City says he plans to conduct a legislative study on possibly expanding Oklahoma's execution law to allow the firing squad, hanging or the electric chair.
School administrators called the day a tragic one.
The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office said the gunman is also dead and the situation has stabilized. Troutdale police told the Associated Press the shooter likely committed suicide.
Multiple students told KATU that physical education teacher Todd Rispler was grazed by a bullet, but was still able to walk. Police said a teacher was injured during the shooting, but did not release the teacher's name. The teacher's injuries were not life-threatening, police said.
"Today is a very tragic day for the city of Troutdale and the Reynolds School District," said Troutdale Police Chief Scott Anderson. "The student has died. I'm very, very sorry for the family."
The names of the shooter and the victim have not been released.
