  • Highland High School in Palmdale California

The shooting happened at or near Highland High School in Palmdale around 7 a.m. PT, even as some students still were arriving at school, sheriff's Capt. Darren Harris said.

The County Sheriff's office in Los Angeles said that one person was detained.

The lockdown at the school was lifted several hours after the shooting and school officials said they would begin reuniting students with their parents.

"Everyone from the blood bank to the lab to radiology to everyone.it was maybe 100 people downstairs waiting for the arrival of all of these injured children", he said.

He said the boy had surgery and was expected to be fine.

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

Deputies said they had secured both locations, and were investigating. "So a very unsafe situation".

Authorities say the teenager dumped the gun in the desert before being caught in a shopping centre.

The off-duty LAPD officer who apprehended the suspect at the Vons supermarket said he had received a call from his mother, who stated that he ran away from the home that morning after they "were having trouble with him, McDonnell said". He was being held on suspicion of attempted murder.

Nadine Luke told CNN her 18-year-old daughter called her, screaming, after she heard shots in the school.

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

Highland High student Katharina Smith, 16, said she was driving to the school when she saw "a ton of police racing toward school". A shooting at the school, she said, has "actually been one of my biggest fears". "We went to the back of it to make sure we were safe".

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. "We know that every second is important in a situation like this and we couldn't be more thankful".
