When the shooting started at her high school near Portland, Oregon, early Tuesday, student Jaimie Infante didn't recognize the sound of the gunshot. She thought maybe somebody had dropped a book.

In reality, a lone gunman had opened fire at the school, killing one student and forcing others to flee. An assistant principal told students to go into lockdown mode.

A teacher suffered non-life-threatening injuries. He was treated at the scene. The suspected gunman is also dead, the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office said.

According to multiple law enforcement officials, the shooter was a student at the school. The gunman appears to have died from a self-inflicted wound, the sources told CNN.

Authorities are working to notify the relatives of both the shooter and the student, neither of whom has been identified. Officials believe they know who the gunman was, but they are "not confident enough" to reveal details yet, Troutdale Police Chief Scott Anderson told reporters midday Tuesday.

"Today is a very tragic day for the city of Troutdale and Reynolds School District," he said. "I'm very, very sorry for the family, and for all the students, and everybody who will be impacted by this tragic incident." About an hour after the shooting, Oregon State Police said the area was secure and the situation was contained. The shooting happened at about 8 a.m. (11 a.m. ET) at Reynolds High School in Troutdale, about 12 miles east of Portland. The city has a population of about 16,400 people.

Classes were in session at the time. Details about what led to the shooting weren't immediately available. The gunman is believed to have used a rifle. A couple of SWAT teams responded, said Sue Strickland of the Troutdale Police Department.
