Two people were slightly injured in a shooting at a high school in Virginia, in the deadliest attack on a US school, local police said.

"Two people were taken to hospital with bullet wounds that do not appear to be life-threatening," Newport News said. According to the website kiro7.com, the victims are two 17-year-old students of Heritage High School.

Two other students were taken to hospital after being injured during the evacuation of the building.

The perpetrator escaped.

The school was evacuated and the students were taken to a nearby tennis court, where their parents were called to pick them up. In videos posted on social networking sites, teenagers and adults can be seen gathered next to the stadium fences. Mental health counselors rushed to the scene.

Police also said reports of "active" gunmen in other schools in the city were false.

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northham wrote on Twitter that he was monitoring the situation, along with his associates.

Virginia was one of the worst massacres in U.S. history in 2007, when a student opened fire on the Polytechnic Institute and Blacksburg State University, killing 32 people and injuring 17 others.
