Police Reports of shots fired at California high school

According to CNN.com, the 14-year-old suspect reportedly shot another teen in the arm at Highland High School before the school day officially started on Friday, May 11. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department confirmed that one gunshot victim was hospitalized after the incident.

Deputies say a 14-year-old suspect was taken into custody after the shooting.

About a half hour after the Highland calls, gunshots were reported at the Manzanita Elementary School, located about seven miles away from Highland High School.

He was found at 6:30 p.m. Friday, May 11 in the 14400 block of Pioneer Boulevard by Norwalk Station Sheriff's deputies who responded to an assault with a deadly weapon call, said Deputy Tina Schrader of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The former student, who transferred in recent months, took out an SKS-style carbine and fired about 10 shots, video of the incident appears to show, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell.

Faculty also provided surveillance video of the suspect arriving and leaving the school, which "assisted in the quick apprehension" of the suspect, McDonnell said.

McDonnell said the boy's mother had called the officer earlier in the morning to tell him she and her husband were having trouble with him and that the teen had run away. Meanwhile Antelope Valley Hospital was told several people were dead and as many as 25 students were injured, said Dr. Pavel Petrik, the trauma center's chief of surgery. "Thankfully we only had one child that was shot". One person was shot in the arm, and a teen was detained.

The department received multiple reports of an armed man around 7 a.m.at the school. "There was no threat to that campus whatsoever", a sheriff's official said in a press conference. The arresting officer is a family friend, McDonnell said. "I never knew it would happen to us here".

The Los Angeles County sheriff's department said on Twitter Friday morning that the school has been searched and cleared. It underscored the national debate over gun control and gun rights that intensified after the February shooting deaths of 17 students and staff members at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
