Teen arrested after student shot at LA-area high school

Highland High School in Palmdale California

The school is on lockdown, students were told to shelter in place and parents were told to stay away from the area.

He says one student was shot in the arm and the shooting stemmed from a dispute between the shooter and the victim.

"Deputies responded immediately to Palmdale shooting, arrest made, weapon found, active investigation underway".

Summary: A 14-year-old in Palmdale, California was arrested for shooting another classmate on Friday.

As that magma flows from the chamber and out of the fissures on the volcano's flanks, the lava level in the center crater falls. That explosion killed one person and sent rocks, ash and dust into the air for 17 days.


Faculty also provided surveillance video of the suspect arriving and leaving the school, which "assisted in the quick apprehension" of the suspect, McDonnell said. "There was no threat to that campus whatsoever", a sheriff's official said in a press conference. Harris said the firearm was recovered "a distance away in the desert".

"Unfortunately, that may be a result of why we were able to to put an end to this so quickly was this rapid deployment and rapid response", said Capt. Darren Harris of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Authorities said the shooting appeared to be random but have not revealed the motive. "Thankfully we only had one child that was shot".

George Ramirez, 15, said he saw students running on campus earlier that morning, but was confused as to why. "I'm startled thinking it's one of my ROTC members".

Nadal breaks McEnroe record
In the quarter-finals, Lajovic will meet South Africa's Kevin Anderson who overcame German Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-3 7-6 (7). Nadal, who is looking for his sixth Madrid Open title, will now face Austria's Dominic Thiem in the quarters on Friday.


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.

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.

It wasn't clear Friday afternoon if the shooting happened outside or inside the school. "At first I didn't believe them, but then I heard a gunshot".

At least three nearby schools - David G. Millen Intermediate, Cottonwood Elementary and Ocotillo Elementary - were on lockdown, employees there said.

Parents asked to prepare students for the Wireless Public Alert System test
The system is still scheduled for the rest of the country this week, with tests planned for BC and AB on Wednesday afternoon. But Blanchet said those alerts have been in place for app users since 2015, and that Monday's wireless testing is different.


Johnny Lewis Sr., whose 17-year-old son is a student at the school, told the Los Angeles Times that he never thought he would experience a school shooting.
