GRAHAM, Wash. – Two suspects have been arrested following the shooting of two students outside a high school in Graham.

KOMO reported that a getaway car has also been located in connection with Tuesday’s shooting at Graham-Kapowsin High School. The male students shot were hospitalized and expected to survive. One of the students was found in a parking lot near the football field. The other student was found inside a locker room.

Pierce County Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said the shooting happened outside the school at the scene of a prearranged fight. But before the fight started, someone in the getaway car fired multiple rounds, hitting the two students. Troyer said one of the two victims may have been a bystander who had no knowledge of the fight.
