Middle School Shooting Was Accidental — LAPD

After the Sal Castro school shooting readers ask How does a 12-year-old get access to a gun

A Los Angeles school shooting is believed to have been caused by a semi-automatic handgun that went off inside a 12-year-old girl's backpack, police said.

According to Everytown, a gun control advocacy organization, the shooting at Sal Castro Middle School marks at least the 14th school shooting in the US this year.

"The Los Angeles Police Department, Los Angeles Fire Department, Los Angeles School Police and District leadership immediately responded, and we followed protocols to ensure the safety and well-being of the Castro Middle School community", she added.

It was not immediately known how the shooter was able to get the gun on campus, Bernal said, noting that the school conducts random weapon checks.

A 15-year-old boy was shot in the head and a 15-year-old girl was shot in the wrist. In addition to the two 15-year-olds, they were described as a 30-year-old woman, an 11-year-old boy and a 12-year-old girl.

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. Shortly after classes commenced at Sal Castro Middle School in Los Angeles's Westlake neighbourhood, gunfire erupted in one of the classes, which resulted in the injury of some classmates and a faculty member.

The suspect reportedly asked him to hide the gun for her but he said he refused.

At the front gate of the school, McNair said she was directed to the back, which was blocked off.

Zipperman said authorities' initial focus will be caring for students who may have witnessed the shooting.

On Friday morning, anxious parents accompanied their children to the school as classes resumed. According to the student, she told him that the gun was in her backpack and that it "accidentally went off when she dropped the bag".

"I'm bringing her here to the school alive, and I don't know what will happen to her between now and when she comes home", Segura said.
