Police respond to reported active shooter in Southern California high school

Police have reportedly taken a 14-year-old into custody after reports that a man fired multiple shots with a rifle inside a high school in Palmdale, California on Friday.

The incident began just after 7 a.m. local time as students began to arrive for the day. Students started reporting gun shots on the campus of 4,000, about 65 miles north of Los Angeles. A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department told VICE News that at 7:05 a.m., police received numerous 911 calls about a man with a gun at Highland High School.

Los Angeles County Fire Department told NBC that paramedics had received a report of at least one person with a gunshot wound, who drove themselves to hospital.

ABC News reported that a 17-year-old had been shot through the forearm.

The school district put Highland and all other area high schools on lockdown. Panicked Twitter posts emanating from the immediate area said students were sheltering in classrooms. Parents arriving to drop students off turned around and drove away.
