1 dead, 5 injured in California school shooting

Santa Clarita, November 14

A California high school student dressed in black opened fire on campus on Thursday, killing at least one person and wounding five others before he was arrested.

“Suspect is in custody and being treated at a local hospital,” Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said.

In addition to a dead female, two males were in critical condition and another was in good condition, Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital said. At Providence Holy Cross Hospital, two female patients were in fair condition and were talking when they arrived, a hospital representative said.

The suspect was described by police as an Asian male and a student at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, about 50 miles (80 km) north of Los Angeles. 

A weapon was recovered at the scene, a police officer told NBC television. — Reuters
