Two teenage girls have been shot dead at Independence High School in Arizona.

A spokeswoman could not confirm whether the victims at the school, in the Phoenix suburb of Glendale, were students.

She did not say who fired the shots but said there is no longer an active shooter.

A weapon was reportedly found near the students.

Numerous police and fire units descended on the school, and streets were closed to traffic in the residential area around the campus.

The school, founded in 1977, has more than 2,000 students.

Dozens of worried parents gathered at a nearby convenience store for word about their children.

"Students are not in (further) danger," Glendale police Officer Tracey Breeden told reporters.
