2 middle school students shot in classroom, suspect in custody

A 12-year-old girl allegedly shot two students and injured three other people at Castro Middle School in the Belmont/Westlake area on Thursday morning, prompting a large-scale police response during a national climate of alert over campus gun violence.

A 15-year-old girl was hit in the wrist and was in stable condition, Los Angeles Police Department spokeswoman Wendy Reyes said. A 30-year-old woman suffered a minor injury in the chaos after the shooting, officials said.

"We know this is a very traumatic incident for all the children involved, particularly inside that classroom", he said.

Police arrested the female student and recovered a gun after the shooting that happened just before 9 a.m.at Salvador B. Castro Middle School, west of the city's downtown.

A shooting by a 12-year-old girl at a Californian school in thought to be unintentional, Los Angeles police say.

Another classmate, 12-year-old Jordan Valenzuela told The Associated Press that he made contact with the suspect after the gun went off.

About 360 students from the sixth to the eighth grade attend the middle school, located in one of Los Angeles's most densely populated neighborhoods. Zipperman stressed that if the investigation determined the student obtained it from an adult in a home where it wasn't properly stored, there could be additional prosecution. Local news agency CNS reported that a 15-year-old girl, possibly a fellow student, had been arrested. "I think he will do fine", said Strumwasser at the LA County-USC Medical Center, as quoted by the Los Angeles Times.

The girl, whose name has not been revealed because of her age, has been charged with negligent discharge of a firearm that left five people injured, including two students who sustained gunshot wounds.

The school is now on lockdown, but officials said the normal school day will continue.

"I just saw something pop", Lopez said.

There was no longer a threat to safety, Zipperman said. "I fear for my son's life".

The register is 92 per cent Latino and most students are from low-income families.
