  • Police Reports of shots fired at California high school

Police in California arrested a 14-year-old boy in connection with a shooting at a high school near Los Angeles on Friday that left one hurt, the local sheriff's department and education officials said.

"That student is going to be OK", Captain Darren Harris, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, said.

The suspect told his father that he shot his gun through the air, McDonnell said.

The lockdown at the school was lifted several hours after the shooting and school officials said they would begin reuniting students with their parents.

About a half-hour after the initial call, reports were received of shots being heard near the campus of Manzanita Elementary School on the 38600 block of 33rd Street East. Deputies searched the elementary school but found nothing. Los Angeles County Sheriff reported on Twitter that the suspect was a teenager and officers have taken away his firearm, according to CNN. The suspect, also a student at the school, was arrested a short time later.

The sheriff's SWAT team was reportedly on the scene and about to enter the school just after 8 a.m. "Thankfully we only had one child that was shot".

She says deputies are searching Highland High School in the high desert Antelope Valley north of Los Angeles. "The student said he was only joking, but deputies later found two semiautomatic rifles, two handguns and 90 high-capacity magazines at the student's home".

The parents recently transferred the boy from Highland High School though it was unclear why. The arresting officer is a family friend, McDonnell said. CBS Los Angeles reported a person who was injured was self-transported to the hospital. "This is ridiculous - there's too many school shootings", said parent Tracy Reed, whose son texted her about the shooting at his school. A shooting at the school, she said, has "actually been one of my biggest fears". "I never knew it would happen to us here". 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.
