California School Shooting Leaves Two Dead, Suspect ‘Gravely’ Wounded

The police investigation will continue for some time, but some of the facts are already known.

Yet again, a troubled young man has chosen to target his fellow students within a gun free zone in California.

The tragedy occurred at the Saugus High School in Los Angeles, and left several students dead, many more injured, and the shooter himself gravely injured after an apparent suicide attempt.

Two students, a 16-year-old female and a 14-year-old victim, are dead and three other teens were injured Thursday after a 16-year-old suspect — who was transported to the hospital and is in “grave” condition — opened fire at Saugus High School in California, officials said.

Six people, all students, had gunshot wounds when police arrived at the scene around 7:40 a.m., Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Capt. Kent Wegener said Thursday afternoon during a news conference. It was later discovered that one of the victims was the suspect, an Asian male student at the school whose 16th birthday is today, Wegener said.

The victims are a 16-year-old female who passed away at 9:23 a.m., a 14-year-old female, a 15-year-old female and two 14-year-old males, according to officials. One of the 14-year-old victims died in the hospital, Villanueva said at the press conference, noting that it was not the shooter.

The police investigation will continue for some time, but some of the facts are already known.

“Detectives have reviewed video that clearly shows the suspect withdraw a handgun and wound five people and shoot himself in the head,” he said.

The suspect’s mother and girlfriend are at the police station, and a search warrant is being written and will be conducted at the suspect’s residence for evidence, Wegener said.

No motive is known at this time.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by this tragedy.
