Teen arrested after student shot at LA-area high school

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.

"The Los Angeles Unified School District police department reported at least 160 such threats in the nine days after the Parkland massacre, and a tip from a school resource officer led Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies to arrest a 17-year-old student at El Camino High School in Whittier that month who is accused of threatening to "shoot up" the school after a teacher took away his earphones", The Los Angeles Time wrote.

The suspect has been charged with one count of attempted murder, McDonnell said.

She says there's no information about that caller and no confirmation of the report. Student Pualani Revis told KABC-TV that students ran into her classroom saying there were gunshots going off.

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.

Lydia Gilbert, a junior at Highland, said her mother was dropping her off when a student ran up and warned her there was a shooting.

"There were some kids running from the school, and security and sheriff were telling people to go home", she said.

"It's scary, I don't know what to feel", Ana Salazar told KTLA. I heard it at the other side of the school. "Thankfully we only had one child that was shot".

Faculty also provided surveillance video of the suspect arriving and leaving the school, which "assisted in the quick apprehension" of the suspect, McDonnell said. Extra counselors will be at all schools to assist students and staff. He didn't elaborate. The injured student is expected to make a full recovery.

Palmdale, a city of about 150,000 people, is in Los Angeles County, about 40 miles north of downtown Los Angeles.

Officials also said someone had called to report shots were fired in the vicinity of Manzanita Elementary School. Two other students were grazed by bullets.

Amid a climate of heightened scrutiny for gun violence and school safety in the wake of the February 14 massacre at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, the Palmdale shooting immediately sparked a frenzy on social media and in the national news media.
