PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Police in Portland are looking for the gunman who opened fire outside an alternative high school, sending three young people to the hospital.

Sgt. Pete Simpson says based on the investigation so far, Friday's shooting outside Rosemary Anderson High School appears to be gang-related.

Police say 16-year-old Taylor Michelle Zimmers is hospitalized in critical condition. Two other victims, 20-year-old David Jackson-Liday and 17-year-old Labraye Franklin, were in fair condition Friday night. Simpson says a bullet grazed the foot of 17-year-old Olyvia Batson. She was treated at the scene.

The spokesman says the victims are students at the high school or in affiliated job training programs.

Witnesses told police there may have been a dispute outside the school before the shooting occurred at a street corner.
