Two 15-year-old girls are dead after a shooting at a Glendale, Arizona, high school this morning, police said.

The shooting was reported at Independence High School, about 12 miles outside of Phoenix. The two teenagers were shot just before 8 a.m. in an "isolated" area of campus, Glendale police said.

Officers found both girls dead at the scene from a single gunshot wound, Officer Tracey Breeden, spokesperson for the Glendale Police Department, said at a news conference. She said this was not an active shooter situation.

The girls were found together with a weapon near them, Breeden said. Both girls were in the 10th grade, she added.

Someone's parents are probably really happy they bought that gun. Wonder if it was to protect their family and they ignore how death statistics go up, including suicide, when a gun is in the house.

6. Murder-suicide. Probably not a broken brain, so most likely cultural, peer-pressure, I sure hope

they didn't feel like they had to choose this over telling others how they felt about each other.

I wonder what that school is teaching? May be a little hate in the curriculum. Wouldn't be the only one.

suggests a different scenario. (Not murder-suicide. Mutual suicide?)

"Police said the shooting took place in a covered patio area outside the cafeteria, adding that there was no active shooter situation and no threats were made before, during or after the incident. "

How do they know it was only between these two?
