Classes Back In Session After Accidental Shooting At LA Middle School

Police say they arrested a female student.

Gloria Echeverria watches as Los Angeles police officers close off a street where a shooting occurred at a middle school on Thursday. "It's still under investigation, still fluid".

Los Angeles police kept parents updated on Twitter and in a meeting outside the school, telling them if they had not heard from their child they should assume they were safe and well.

The teenage boy was shot in the head and was in stable but critical condition at an area hospital.

Spry said there was no further danger at the school. "They thought it was a toy gun, but then it shot", Benjamin Urbina said, describing a "big pop" after the firearm went off.

The girl, being held in Los Angeles County Central Juvenile Hall, was also booked for negligent discharge of a firearm, authorities said.

Sergeant Edward Bernal of the Los Angeles Unified District Police Department said: "With the suspect in custody, the situation is under control".

The shooting was reported just before 9 a.m.at the school, which has about 365 students in grades 6-8. "I said, 'No.' Then I moved away from her because I was a little bit scared".
