The gunman who opened fire on a group of students outside a Portland high school is a suspected gang member, police said.

A 16-year-old girl is in a critical condition while the condition of two boys, aged 17 and 20, is serious. A fourth woman, aged 19, was grazed by a bullet but did not need hospital treatment.

Police Sergeant Pete Simpson said preliminary information suggests the shooter has gang ties.

This is the second school shooting in Portland this year.
