VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

Washington Elementary students in Vancouver will start their day late Thursday due to a police investigation at the school.

Classes will begin at 10:30 a.m.

According to Vancouver Police, officers have arrested two suspects, and are conducting an investigation on the grounds.

Officers will called to the scene at 3:15 a.m. after reports of gun shots in the area. They saw two men near the school, and said they heard the shots being fired in their direction, leading officers to duck behind their patrol vehicle.

Investigators said the responding officer saw the two men running into a home on the 1700 block of East 29th Street. The department's SWAT team responded to the scene and the men were arrested without incident.

Vancouver School District officials told Fox 12 that for any early arrivals at the school, the district will provide two school buses where students can wait.

The school district security staff will be on hand Thursday morning to answer questions from parents.
