Police in Troutdale Oregon have released the name of the student shot and killed by a gunman at Reynolds High School today. He was 14 year old freshman Emilio Hoffman.

Police Chief Scott Anderson says Hoffman’s family has a difficult road ahead.

“I met with Emilio’s parents this afternoon and they can tell you how devastated they are. They want you to know he was a great kid and he was loved by all.”

Anderson thanked teacher Todd Rispler. He says the injured gym teacher was able to make his way to the school office and initiate a lockdown.

The police say they have tentatively identified the shooter but are not releasing any information about him yet.
