Teenager arrested after classmate shot with rifle at high school

The suspect was a "male Hispanic juvenile", the sheriff's office said, later clarifying that the weapon was a rifle that was "recovered off campus". The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is expected to hold a press conference at 3 pm PT Friday.

"That student is going to be OK", Captain Darren Harris, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, said. The injuries are not considered life-threatening. While police searched for the suspect and secured the area, the school was on lockdown. Some students and staff members said they were initially were concerned that they might be facing a mass shooting situation. "It was their faces". I heard it at the other side of the school. "It was real fear".

The high school was being searched by dogs trained to detect explosives, law enforcement sources told ABC News, as sheriff's deputies worked to calm anxious parents who had come to the school after social media reports of a shooting.

"About a minute later, I get a call from them saying there were gunshots" and they asked to be picked up, Munoz said.

"Within seconds, all the kids were in classrooms or off campus".

Highland confirmed in a tweet that it saw "no threat" to pupils and added that staff were working with law enforcement to determine release procedures for students.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is looking into the history of the rifle and who owned the gun.

The initial report of a gunman at Highland High School came in at 7:05 a.m. local time, and was followed by a report about a half hour later of shots fired near an elementary school in the area, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office.
