Highland High School Shooting: Victim Shot in Arm, 14-Year-Old Detained

Police Reports of shots fired at California high school

Los Angeles County deputies detained a 14-year-old former Highland High School student in the shooting of a 15-year-old boy, who was hit in the arm.

Los Angeles County sheriff's Capt. Darran Harris tells KTTV Friday that the student was taken into custody and a gun was recovered at the scene.

The victim had been stabbed at least once in the upper torso, Schrader said.

A teen suspected of shooting a fellow student at a high school in Palmdale is taken into custody on May 11, 2018.

The initial report of a gunman at Highland High School came in at 7:05 a.m. local time, and was followed by a report about a half hour later of shots fired near an elementary school in the area, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office.

Officials said deputies searched the elementary school and found no evidence of a shooting.

Firefighter-paramedics told NBC Los Angeles they received a report of one person with a gunshot wound, though any injuries couldn't be independently confirmed. Authorities also set up an area to receive anxious parents who were rushing to the school to pick up their children.

Canada's Emergency Alert System Fails First Quebec Test
The system is still scheduled for the rest of the country this week, with tests planned for BC and AB on Wednesday afternoon. There was no signal in Quebec and it was being blamed on a space that was incorrectly included in the coding.


Authorities said the shooting appeared to be random but have not revealed the motive.

In March, a teacher accidentally discharged a gun during a public safety class at Seaside High School in Seaside, California, injuring a student.

The sheriff's SWAT team was reportedly on the scene and about to enter the school just after 8 a.m.

The off-duty officer, who works for Los Angeles police, then detained the teen.

He said the teen's father called a family friend who's an off-duty police officer and told him where the boy was. He said he heard one shot and turned.

The parents recently transferred the boy from Highland High School though it was unclear why. "We know that every second is important in a situation like this and we couldn't be more thankful".

"They said there was a shooter", Mr Root said. 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.
