PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The student killed in Thursday's shooting at Seattle Pacific University graduated from high school in Portland, Oregon.

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray identified the student as 19-year-old Paul Lee. He declined to identify Lee's hometown, but the young man's friends told KGW-TV that he attended Portland's Westview High School.

Lee's Facebook page identifies him as a 2013 graduate of Westview High and his university as Seattle Pacific.

Nobody answered the phone at the Westview High on Friday afternoon, and the answering machine was not accepting messages.
