Yakima Police say two students at Eisenhower High School were shot outside the school Tuesday. Authorities say a 16-year-old is in critical condition and an 18-year-old is in serious condition.

Police say an altercation between two groups started in the parking lot

The shooting was reported at about 3:00 pm in the parking lot of the school after two groups exchanged words and shots were fired. Police are now searching for at least two suspects in the gang related shooting. The shooting outside the school resulted in the lockdown of area schools.
