Transcript for Fatal shooting at a Washington state high school
In the mean time, we turn to the other major news this evening. A deadly shooting at a high school near Spokane, Washington. The school and that area put on lockdown. Students huddling in classrooms when the shots rang out. Parents were forced to park down the road from the school, having to run up to a mile just to find out if their children were safe. Tonight, we've learned the shooter is in custody, and there may have been a warning. Here's ABC's Clayton Sandell.

Kids and teachers huddled in locked down classrooms while parents rushed to school in an agonizing wait for news. The shooter is now in custody. I'm with the suspect in the vehicle and he is telling me again he is the only shooter. Reporter: Student Michael Harper says the suspect recently warned others that something bad was coming. He was handing out notes to his friends, and it saw that he was going to do something that might get him killed or in jail.
