Student Shot, Wounded at High School in Palmdale; Suspect in Custody

A 14-year-old student has been taken into custody after he shot another student in the arm with a rifle at Highland High School in Palmdale Friday morning, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

About a half hour after the Highland calls, gunshots were reported at the Manzanita Elementary School, located about seven miles away from Highland High School.

The school was "cleared by deputies", the Sheriff's Department said about 9 a.m. Los Angeles County Sheriff reported on Twitter that the suspect was a teenager and officers have taken away his firearm, according to CNN.

Officials say a 14-year-old high school student used a rifle to shoot a classmate at their high school in the California city of Palmdale and dumped the gun in the desert before he was caught at a nearby shopping center.

The sheriff's department says deputies searched the school and found no evidence of a crime. The campus was then placed on lockdown and students were told to shelter in place, McDonnell said.

The sheriff said the boy is accused of attempted murder.

The injured student, a 15-year-old boy, was driven to a hospital by a parent who was dropping her daughter off at school shortly after the 7 a.m. shooting at the campus in the 39000 block of 25th Street West.

Investigators were trying to determine what led up to the shooting and whether the boys knew each other. WATCH: Sheriff's spokesman discusses school shooting in Palmdale Student Pauline Guijaro said she heard a volley of "around 10 gunshots".
