Just horrific.[1] There has been a double-shooting at a High School in Glendale, Arizona. I used to live not far from there. The campus is on lock down currently and parents are lining the streets trying to figure out if their children are okay. This is the statement from Glendale Union High School District via Facebook: “Independence High School was put on lock down this morning due to a police investigation. Police have secured the campus. There is no active shooter on campus. The investigation is ongoing. The campus remains on lock down and no one will be allowed to enter or exit the campus until the police have lifted the lock down and ensured the safety of the school. Parents will be notified as soon as it is safe for students to be picked up from campus. We will actively communicate with parents as more information is available.” My prayers are with the parents and the students there.

From Fox 10:

GLENDALE, Ariz. (KSAZ) – Police and firefighters are responding to a double-shooting at valley high school.

The Glendale Police Department confirms the shooting is at Independence High School at 6602 N. 75th Ave. The shooting is an isolated incident and there is not an active shooter, however, the school remains on lockdown.

Due to the police activity, 75th Avenue is shut down near the school. Police are advising parents to not go to the high school, but instead, to a nearby staging area at 75th Avenue and Glendale.

Two teenagers have been shot[3] at a high school in Glendale, police confirmed Friday. I believe this is Independence High School. Sources tell ABC15’s Christopher Sign that one person has died. Police have not confirmed that publicly. Police received a call about a shooting at the school shortly before 8 a.m. More than 2,000 students attend that high school. A press conference will be forth coming. Please keep the students and families in your prayers.
