Former University of Oregon football player Keanon Lowe is being credited with tackling a suspected gunman on the campus of a Portland high school, according to the latest reports from police. Lowe was a wide receiver for the Ducks between 2011 and 2014.

Just before noon on Friday, officers were called to Parkrose High School for reports of a man armed with a gun.

"Officers arrived and determined that a Parkrose High School staff member had wrestled the suspect to the ground," PPB said in a brief statement. Lowe is the school's football coach.

Police said that the confrontation between the gunman and Lowe happened near the school's tennis courts. Officers then took the man into custody and recovered his gun at the scene.

The suspect has not yet been identified, but students told a KGW reporter at the scene that the armed person was a student. A parent told the Oregonian that the suspect intended to harm himself. Police have not yet confirmed any of these details.

There were no initial signs of a second shooter or any injuries at the school, police reported. Investigators were still working to determine if any shots were fired during the incident.

Officers continue to be on the scene, and PPB said that its Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT) had been activated. Officers and members of the SERT team were conducting a search of the area, and the investigation remained underway.

Students have been released to their parents following the incident, according to the Portland Police Bureau (PPB). Police notified parents that they could meet and pick up students at the K-Mart on Northeast 122nd and Sandy.

"It may take up to an hour or more to safely release all students. Middle school remains on lockout as a precaution," the Parkrose School District said in social media posts. "High School students may not have access to their presonal items until some time later."

This is a developing story, and NewsWatch 12 will update this article as details emerge.
