Female Student Seen in Handcuffs After LA School Shooting

Los Angeles School Police Chief Steven Zipperman assured the public late Thursday morning that the school was secured. The other victims are all in stable condition.

Several students were taken out of classrooms and searched by police during the campus lockdown.

Another three people - aged between 11 and 30 - are reported to injured in peripheral circumstances, most likely in connection to attempting to escape the scene of the shooting.

Gloria Echeverria was outside a line of police tape preventing people from approaching the school, waiting for news about her 13-year-old son.

Officer Drake Madison says reports of gunfire came in shortly before 9 a.m. Thursday at a school just west of downtown Los Angeles.

A 12-year-old girl has been arrested following a school shooting in Los Angeles.

A 15-year-old boy is in critical condition after being shot in the head, and a 15-year-old girl is in fair condition after being shot in the wrist at Salvador Castro Middle School.

At an informal presentation of good-attendance certificates last month, Principal Erick Mitchell said his campus was becoming a destination for families who wanted a smaller school setting.

A female suspect was in custody after two teenagers were injured in a middle school shooting, authorities said. "There is no more safety threat to the students of this school".

Bernal says a gun was recovered.

A local TV news station showed footage of the 12-year-old being led out of the school in handcuffs.

"Our parents who are watching should be assured that their children are in great care", he added.

"Someone chose to bring a gun, I guess someone was accidentally playing around with it", said a 12-year-old seventh-grader, according to the Times.

This is at any rate the third USA school shooting in recent week.

A girl believed to be 12 years old is a person of interest in the shooting and is in custody, officials said.

Arriving officers "located a few victims and they also located the suspect, who they took into custody without further incident", Los Angeles police Lt. Chris Ramirez said.
