Glendale Union High School District has released students at Independence High School after two students were found dead of gunshot wounds on Friday morning.

Police said the girls were found next to each other and a gun was located nearby. They are not looking for any other suspects or persons of interest, according to a Glendale police spokesperson.


Students have been released from Independence High School, according to the district.

However, parents are not allowed on campus.

Parents have to meet at the Walmart near 75th Avenue and Glendale Avenue and will be bused to the school to be reunited with their student. Parents need to have identification to pick-up their student.

Parents will then be bused back to the staging area.

Some students will be allowed to walk home or drive home. However, they MUST contact their parent or legal guardian. The school will be making sure that contact happens, according to the district.

Students who regularly take the bus home will be transported home via the bus.

"No student will be allowed to leave campus without parent/guardian notice," the district said in its Facebook update.
