Teen shot in arm at Highland High School in Palmdale, California; suspect in custody.
“A shooting just happened at a high school in Palmdale where I spoke on Monday. Fortunately, only one student was injured and the kid who did the shooting is in custody. The kids and teachers who had to feel that terror this morning are forever changed. I keep telling people that it’s not a matter of “if” your life will be impacted by gun violence, but “when.” Palmdale is no different than Littleton, Newtown, or Parkland.
Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results is insane. We must change our gun culture, our gun laws, and the ways we track guns and study the epidemic’s causes and solutions.
This is all a huge factor in why I’m running for Congress”. #NeverAgain
(CNN) A 14-year-old boy is in custody on suspicion of shooting a teen in the arm at a Southern California high school Friday morning, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.
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 names of neither the suspect nor the wounded teen, also 14, were immediately released. The suspect is a former student who left the school in April, LA Sheriff Capt. Darren Harris said.
The injured student brought himself to a hospital and is expected to recover fully, Harris said.
It’s the 21st school shooting in the United States this year.
Witnesses who were outside the school described hearing a gunshot or gunshots, and seeing students running from the building.
The suspect was apprehended near a Vons grocery store about a mile from the school, a Los Angeles County fire official said. Authorities found a rifle believed to have been used in the shooting “a distance away (from the school) in the desert,” Harris said.
