  • Highland High School in Palmdale California

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

One person has been injured in a shooting at a California high school amid multiple reports of a gunman on campus.

The suspect, a male, was apprehended near a Vons grocery store in Palmdale, a Los Angeles County fire official said.

All schools in the area were placed on lockdown while law enforcement swarmed the high school campus, and nervous parents began gathering nearby, anxiously hoping to retrieve their children.

The shooting at Highland High School in the high desert Antelope Valley was sparked by a dispute between the alleged shooter and the victim, Los Angeles County sheriff's Capt. Darren Harris told KTTV.

The department added that the suspect was arrested off-campus and a rifle was recovered off-campus, and the shooting appears to be an isolated incident with no further threats to the community.




The shooting was initially reported as an active shooter, prompting a massive response from law enforcement, including the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Deputies reported to the elementary school but found no victims and no sign of a shooter, Nishida said.

It wasn't clear Friday afternoon if the shooting happened outside or inside the school.

A person was detained after deputies responded to a report of a man with a gun at Highland High School, which is about 7 miles (11 kilometers) away.

A message posted to Highland High School principal's Twitter account urged everyone to stay clear of campus.

Lydia said she then heard two gunshots before she and her mom drove away. More information will be provided as it becomes available.
