One hurt in United States school shooting

He was described as a 14-year-old of Hispanic descent.

The off-duty officer, who works for Los Angeles police, then detained the teen without incident.

The department added that the suspect was arrested off-campus and a rifle was recovered off-campus, and the shooting appears to be an isolated incident with no further threats to the community.

While law enforcement officials scrambled to find the shooter, the school was placed on a lock-down that would last for two hours.

Investigators say the shooting stemmed from a dispute between the shooter and the victim, but are still trying to pin down the exact motive.

Authorities say the teenager dumped the gun in the desert before being caught in a shopping centre.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is looking into the history of the rifle and who owned the gun. He didn't elaborate. The injured student is expected to make a full recovery.

At around 7:30 a.m. on Friday, deputies received reports that one 14-year-old shot another 14-year-old student at Highland High School while students were arriving for their morning classes.

Deputies found a rifle believed used in the shooting but not on the Palmdale school campus.

A 15-year-old boy was shot in the head and a 15-year-old girl shot in the wrist at Sal Castro Middle School in Los Angeles on February 1, officials said.

After investigating the report at the elementary school, investigators determined that no shots had been fired at the second school.

The school sign reads, "bully-free zone", at Highland High School where a shooting occurred on May 11, 2018 in Palmdale, California.

Palmdale, a city of about 150,000 people, is in Los Angeles County, about 40 miles north of downtown Los Angeles.

More information will become available as the situation develops.

"So I called the school and his teacher was crying, but she said everything was fine and he was fine", Guzman said.

Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies were deployed on the campus within five minutes.

Authorities converged on the campus along West 25th Street and searched the school for the possible shooter.

Deputy Charles Moore says there is no confirmation of an actual person with a gun or any shooting.
