California cops respond to report of man with gun at school

LIVE: At Least One Wounded After Gunman Reportedly Seen On Campus At High School In Palmdale

Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Office deputies were searching the grounds of Highland High School in Palmdale, Officer Nicole Nishida, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office, told ABC News.

The suspect, a former student at Highland High School, was taken into custody at a supermarket by an off-duty Los Angeles police officer after the boy called his father to tell him that he had fired a gun into the air, McDonnell said.

Deputies detained a 14-year-old boy Friday morning after he allegedly shot another Highland High School student in the arm.

Sheriff's deputies also headed to a second school, Manzanita Elementary School, a few miles away after receiving reports around 7:30 a.m. that people thought they heard gunfire, Boese said.

California authorities arrested one 14-year-old suspect after reports of gunshots at a high school in Palmdale, according to media reports.

Deputies found a rifle believed used in the shooting but not on the Palmdale school campus. Authorities said the victim is a 15-year-old boy who was shot through the forearm and transported himself to a local medical center.

The suspect was a "male Hispanic juvenile", the sheriff's office said, later clarifying that the weapon was a rifle that was "recovered off campus".

"So I called the school and his teacher was crying, but she said everything was fine and he was fine", Guzman said.

The motive for the shooting is unknown and it's unclear whether it is gang related, Schrader said. Witnesses to the shooting said they saw people running from the building and heard gunshots.

Harris says the school is safe but remains on lockdown as officials worked to reunite students with their parents.

"We barricaded the room", she said.

At least three nearby schools - David G. Millen Intermediate, Cottonwood Elementary and Ocotillo Elementary - were on lockdown, employees there said. "Thankfully we only had one child that was shot".

Agents with the Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) were heading to the scene, the agency said. Two other students were grazed by bullets.

Johnny Lewis, whose 17-year-old son is a student at the school, told The Los Angeles Times that he raced to the campus with his wife after hearing reports about the shooting.

Investigators say the shooting stemmed from a dispute between the 14-year-old and the victim.
