    Officials direct traffic near Graham-Kapowsin High School, Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2017, in Graham, Wash.

    Washington state authorities say two male students have been shot near a high school in the small city of Graham near Tacoma.

    The Pierce County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday both victims were hospitalized and expected to survive, but that their conditions were not immediately known.

    One of the students was found in a parking lot near the football field of Graham-Kapowsin High School.

    The other student was found inside a locker room. Detective Ed Troyer says the two students were shot just off school grounds and that they ran back to campus.

    Christopher Lee Watts was charged with five counts of murder Monday for the deaths of his wife Shanann Watts and their two daughters Bella and Celeste. Watts had initially pleaded publicly that his wife and daughters had gone missing. Their bodies were discovered on the property of the oil and natural gas company Watts worked for. The D.A. said that it's "too early" to discuss whether prosecutors would seek the death penalty.

    Deputies who checked the school's grounds found no signs any suspects were there.

    The sheriff's office said multiple suspects were being sought.
