A shooting at a suburban Phoenix high school that killed two 15-year-old girls and caused panic among parents was a murder-suicide, police said.It is believed nobody witnessed the shooting, Breeden said.Hours before the lock-down of the school was lifted, hundreds of worried parents crowded the parking lots of nearby discount and convenience stores.Cheryl Rice said she went to a store after a friend called about the shooting and asked about Rice's 15-year-old daughter.The Glendale Union High School District alerted parents to the shooting through emails and automatic phone calls and released information on social media, Superintendent Brian Capistran said.Students typically are not allowed to use their cellphones during lock-downs, but as calls from parents flooded the district, officials asked teachers to have students call family, Capistran said.
