Middle School Shoot Was Not Intentional

A Los Angeles police school officer walks under yellow tape at the Salvador B. Castro Middle School near downtown Los Angeles Thursday Feb. 1 2018

A 12-year-old girl arrested in connection with a school shooting Thursday afternoon after wounding two students with a gun she thought was a toy, a witness said. They tweeted, "Our Los Angeles Officials from @LASchoolPolice @LASchools @LAPDRampart are addressing parents of yesterday's incident and ensuring our priority is the safety of their children here at Sal Castro Middle/Belmont High".

The girl shot both a 15-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl on Thursday, police said.

A day earlier, a 15-year-old student was injured in a shooting in the Texas city of Italy. The boy, who was shot in the head, was transported in critical condition, said Capt. Erik Scott of the Los Angeles Fire Department. The girl holding the firearm "didn't mean to" shoot the 15-year-old girl, he said, according to the station.

The entire school complex remained under lockdown for several hours before the authorities announced around noon that lessons could resume, with counsellors provided in each classroom.

According to the Daily Mail, a 12-year-old girl was arrested in connection with a shooting at Salvador Castro Middle School in Los Angeles on February 1.

Television footage has shown police leading a girl away from the school in Los Angeles after they were called to reports of gunshots in a classroom shortly before 9am.

"The school has been declared safe at this point".

Just yesterday, another shooting occurred in an American public school; however, this time authorities are concluding that the incident was accidental. A lot of anxious parents and relatives were waiting outside the campus.

The girl was taken into custody minutes after the shooting.

"As an older brother you wouldn't like your little sister to be in this type of situation, you know", he said.

Arcos said that the 12-year-old has an attorney and is not talking to investigators.

The district has a policy which states random searches should be carried out daily with a metal detector wand.

The shooting was in the Westlake District, a heavily populated area just northwest of downtown Los Angeles. Last year, Castro Middle had an enrollment of 355 students.
