Patriot High shooting
Two adults died Wednesday in a shooting at a Riverside County high school that authorities are investigating as a murder-suicide.

Officers responded about 10:40 a.m. to the parking lot at Patriot High School in Jurupa Valley and found a man and a woman who had been shot, the Riverside County Sheriff's Department said.

The school was locked down as sheriff's deputies searched for additional wounded people and suspects.

No students were injured, officials said, and no one was arrested.

One of the victims was a man who was pronounced dead in the parking lot, officials said. The other victim was a woman who was taken to a nearby hospital, where she died a short while later. Their names were not released because relatives had not been notified.

The department said there are no outstanding suspects but asked that anyone with information call investigators at (951) 955-2777 or (951) 955-2600.
