LA school shooting: 1 arrested, 1 in critical condition

2 students shot at Los Angeles middle school

A 15-year-old boy is in critical condition and a 15-year-old girl is in fair condition after being shot inside a classroom at Sal Castro Middle School in Los Angeles on Thursday, according to authorities.

The victims were a 15-year-old girl and a 15-year-old boy, the department said.

The suspected shooter is a female student who has been arrested, Sgt. Edward Bernal tells KTLA.

School police said the shots were fired in a classroom, but Ramirez later told reporters he didn't know where the shooting happened.

"Not safe, very insecure", Anzueto said of the school.

Two students were shot inside a Los Angeles middle school Thursday, and a female student was in custody, police said.




"This child was extremely lucky", said Dr. Aaron Strumwasser, a trauma surgeon.

Parent Claudia Anzueto, 41, said her 12-year-old son was crying when he used someone else's cellphone to call her. She said she never saw a gun.

Sal Castro Middle School is near the city's Westlake district, roughly a couple of miles northwest of downtown, and it shares a campus with Belmont High School.

Anzueto said there were no metal detectors at the school. The other student was struck in the hand by a bullet, KTLA reports. A 30-year-old woman who was treated after the shooting was not hospitalized and the nature of her injury was not immediately known.

Castro has about 365 students in grades 6-8 and nearly all are Hispanic and many from low-income families. "We have our school mental health folks that are here to support the needs of the students".
