The suspect in the Reynolds High School shooting is 15-year-old Jerod Padgett who was a student at the school. Police say he was carrying a guitar case and duffel bag when he got off a school bus. He walked into the gym locker room and killed Emilio Hoffman.
Padgett was carrying at AR-15 rifle, a semi-automatic handgun, 9 magazines of ammunition and a large knife. He didn't use the handgun.
Troutdale Police Chief Scott Anderson says Padgett encountered the two school resources officers and there was an exchange of gunfire. Padgett went into a restroom where he killed himself.
They don't know of any connection between Padgett and Hoffman. There is no known motive.
Padgett got the guns from home out of a secured cabinet.
