Oregon: US police fatally shot a man Friday who showed up with a gun at an Oregon middle school amid a custody dispute, but no one else was injured, authorities said.
The man was being escorted from Cascade Middle School in the city of Eugene when he began struggling and pulled out a gun, police Lt. Jennifer Bills told reporters. She initially said the shooting was inside the school.
Students were locked in classrooms, and the school was locked down for nearly four hours while police investigated in the city about 177 kilometers south of Portland and home of the University of Oregon.
By Friday afternoon, officers were escorting small groups of children to a church across the street where parents had gathered.
Yellow crime scene tape surrounded the school's main parking lot and a yellow tarp covered the suspect's body, which lay just a few feet from one entrance.
The area saw one of the first school shootings to seize the national spotlight.
