Two shot after woman, 12, opens fireplace at Los Angeles college

He says she was sobbing and kept repeating, "I didn't mean it".

"Someone chose to bring a gun, I guess someone was accidentally playing around with it", said Benjamin, a 12-year-old seventh-grader, whose guardian asked that his last name not be used. It was still unclear whether she was the one considered a suspect in the incident.

TV footage showed a dark-haired girl wearing a sweatshirt being led out of the school in handcuffs.

Police interviewed the girl and agreed it was an accident.

"This continues to be an active investigation; however at this time, the information suggests it was an isolated incident involving the negligent discharge of a firearm, where innocent children and a staff member were unfortunately injured", Ramirez said.

She later told Lopez that she was sitting next to two girls who were injured.

Five people were injured in the shooting.

"The 15-year-old girl suffered a gunshot wound to the right wrist, doctors said, and she was said to be resting comfortably in the hospital's emergency department". "I think he will do fine". I anticipate that he will make a full recovery. A 15-year-old male student opened fire at Marshall County High in Kentucky, killing two students and injuring 18 others.

The other victims were an 11-year-old boy, a 12-year-old girl and a 30-year-old woman, all of whom sustained "minor abrasion injuries" and were not hospitalized, LAFD officials said.

Victims are loaded into ambulances, and LAPD officers take a girl into custody on the campus of Salvador Castro Middle School in Los Angeles.

Shallin Lopez, a seventh-grader, was in the room at the time of the shooting.

"I fear for my son's life", Anzueto says. "It was loud. I didn't see her shoot". The shooting was in a classroom on campus, according to local broadcast media, which the middle school shares with older students at Belmont High School.

Paw Paw crash involves 29 vehicles, closes I-94
The Michigan State Police (MSP) is now investigating a multi-vehicle crash on westbound I-94 near Hartford, MI at mile marker 45. Police urge motorists to use caution while snow is falling, slowing speeds and leaving extra room between vehicles.

A 15-year-old boy shot in the head is in critical but stable condition.

If that charge is filed against her, and she is found guilty, punishment could be light if no other charges are filed.

"Someone made a decision to bring a gun, I guess someone was accidentally playing with it", Benjamin, a seventh-grader.

"Mom I'm scared", the first one said. The woman said her granddaughter did not have many friends and had been bullied by another girl.

The shooting left parents shaken.

Twelve-year-old Jordan Valenzuela tells The Associated Press that he talked to the girl just after the shooting.

"Our campus, while it's on lockdown, is safe".

"We could not control or know about this situation, but our schools are safe", said Vivian Ekchian, interim superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District.

The school was to hold classes Friday.

People have criticized the district's security policy, which mandates that all middle and high schools conduct security searches of students, for being ineffective and discriminating against minority students.

The shooting took place in an elective class at the Sal Castro Middle School on Thursday morning with students from different grades in attendance.

The shooting was reported to police Thursday at 8:55 a.m.
