California boy, 14, shoots high school student

LIVE: At Least One Wounded After Gunman Reportedly Seen On Campus At High School In Palmdale

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

Garret Root, a teacher at the school, told KNBC-TV that he was walking up to the school when he saw a group of students running away and asked them what was happening.

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.

Investigators say the shooting stemmed from a dispute between the shooter and the victim, but are still trying to pin down the exact motive.

In the end, there was just one shooting and one victim, at Highland High School, about 40 miles (64 kilometres) northeast of Los Angeles.

Jayden Madise, a junior, said he was sitting with friends in an open area on the first floor when he heard a loud noise.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is looking into the history of the rifle and who owned the gun.

"Palmdale sheriff's station trains for these types of incidents, so they were there quickly", Harris said.

Deputies today went to Highland High School in Palmdale in response to a report of a man with a gun and detained a person at the scene, and also went to an elementary school in the area amid a report of shots fired, the sheriff's department reported.

Officials said deputies searched the elementary school and found no evidence of a shooting. She told the Los Angeles Times that he was arrested in a nearby parking lot. The teen was in her Reserve Officers' Training Corps class, and said students were putting sofas and desks in front of the classroom door and windows to barricade themselves inside, Luke said. Both individuals are said to be attending the high school.

Faculty also provided surveillance video of the suspect arriving and leaving the school, which "assisted in the quick apprehension" of the suspect, McDonnell said.

Highland High School is located about 65 miles from Los Angeles. He didn't elaborate. The injured student is expected to make a full recovery.

According to CNN, this is the 21st school shooting in the United States this year.
