Mayor Charlie Hales said Portland residents should “Love your kids and give them a good hug” while at the scene of a high school shooting that occurred Friday afternoon.
Shortly after 12:10 p.m. three teenagers were wounded after a shooter opened fire outside Rosemary Anderson High School, on North Killingsworth Ct., and then fled on foot, police said.

The mayor made brief remarks before heading to Legacy Emanuel Hospital where the victims had been taken.
Unlike many high profile shootings at schools around the country in which a student has shot other students and then committed suicide, police made a point to say that the incident was not an active shooter situation.
The crime scene moved into investigation phase quickly, with police speculating that the shooting could either be gang-related or a personal grudge.
