1 student shot at California high school, suspect in custody

Los Angeles County Sheriff's officials said they arrested the suspect, also a student, and confiscated the weapon.

The injured student, a 15-year-old boy, was driven to a hospital by a parent who was dropping her daughter off at school shortly after the 7 a.m. shooting at the campus in the 39000 block of 25th Street West.

Authorities responded to reports of a man with a gun at a high school in Palmdale, California, on Friday, May 11, 2018.

A message posted to the Highland High School principal's Twitter account urged everyone to stay clear of campus. Douglas Alexander, a teacher, described the aftermath of the initial gunfire. The suspect's identity was not immediately released.

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.


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.

Authorities say the suspect ran off after the shooting and dumped the rifle along the way before he was caught in a shopping center. "I mean, it's tiresome".

Palmdale, a city of about 160,000 people, boasts that it is the "aerospace capital of the United States". "Our kids aren't supposed to be hurt". Both individuals are said to be attending the high school. Deputies and California Highway Patrol officers established a perimeter in the area. Schools in the area went into lockdown amid the active shooter reports.

Sheriff's Capt. Darren Harris said earlier that deputies believe the suspect was acting alone. "This may take a while, so your patience is appreciated".

The Sheriff's Information Bureau says the report was received at 7:05 a.m. Friday and deputies were sent to Highland High School.
