Female shooter opens fire in SCHOOL - casualties reported

But the two children actually had grazing gunshot wounds, Strumwasser said.

At a school event last month where good attendance certificates were presented, Principal Erick Mitchell said the campus is becoming a destination for families who want a smaller school setting, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The girl was booked into Juvenile Hall on Thursday night on suspicion of negligently discharging a firearm on school grounds.

The campus was placed on lockdown for several hours as police searched the middle school, but LAPD indicated they did not believe there were any additional suspects outstanding.

A 15-year-old girl with a gunshot wound to the wrist was taken to a hospital in fair condition, Scott said. Jordan says the girl, who is a friend, said the gun went off accidentally when she dropped the pack. 'The trajectory of the bullet did not hit any vital structures that were an immediate threat to life. "So I think he will do fine".

A 30-year-old woman and two others have suffered minor injuries, but not gunshot wounds.

It happened at 08:55 local time (16:55 GMT) on Thursday at Salvador Castro Middle School in the Westlake district.

Sky5 aerial video showed two officers escorting an apparently handcuffed female off the campus and to an awaiting LAPD patrol auto, where she was placed in the back seat. A suspect, a 16-year-old male, was "apprehended within minutes", city officials said.

Classes resumed as usual Friday, but counselors were on hand.

Shortly after that he said the girl asked him to hide the weapon.

The shooting took place in a mixed-grade class at the middle school, which is located on the campus of Belmont High School, not far from downtown Los Angeles.

It remains unclear how or why the girl brought the gun to the school.

"She was crying", Jordan said.

"I'm nervous, I'm anxious, I want to cry", Salinas added.
