Screen Shot 2018 02 01 at 12.50.56 PM 758x506 - School Shooting Takes Place at Los Angeles Middle School. TWELVE Year Old Student Shoots Two Classmates

Two teens were shot inside Salvador Castro Middle School in one of the classrooms Thursday morning and police arrested a 12-year-old female student ‘person of interest’, authorities said.

Gun shots were heard shortly before 9am at Salvador Castro Middle School in a Los Angeles neighborhood.

A 15-year-old male was shot in the head and a 15-year-old female shot in the wrist. The boy is in critical but stable condition, while the female is in fair condition.

Three others were injured suffering non-gun related injuries including an 11-year-old boy, a 12-year-old girl and a 30-year-old woman, School Police Department Chief Steven Zipperman said.

TV footage showed a girl with dark hair and wearing a sweatshirt being led out of the school in handcuffs.

 

 

School shootings by girls are rare. One of the most well-known cases was Brenda Spencer, who targeted Cleveland Elementary School in San Diego in 1979.

The 16-year-old killed a principal and a custodian and injured eight children. When asked about her motivation, she reportedly said “I don’t like Mondays.”
