Police apprehend a Hispanic 12-year-old girl who allegedly shot her classmates today.
Four were injured in today’s shooting, including one male student who is reportedly in critical condition after being shot in the head. In a strange turn of events, police are now saying the shooting was an accident? Which leaves us wondering how do you accidentally shoot 4 people?
We are currently waiting for it to be confirmed on whether the shooter was a ‘Dreamer’ or not but details are being released slowly in this case, which is only adding to the confusion. One parent at the middle school claims that the school went on like ‘business as usual’ wanting the other children to remain in class and complete the day. Take a look.
As Reported By Katherine Lam and Nicole Darrah with Fox News:
A young female student allegedly opened fire inside a classroom at a Los Angeles middle school Thursday, leaving four students wounded — including one in critical condition, police said.
The shooting suspect — who police confirmed is 12 years old — allegedly opened fire just before 9 a.m. inside Salvador B. Castro Middle School and was taken into custody. The student was not immediately identified.

The shooting was said to be an accident, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
A female student, 15, was shot in the wrist and taken to the hospital in fair condition. And another student, a 15-year-old boy, was “extremely lucky,” according to trauma surgeon Dr. Aaron Strumwasser, as “the trajectory of the bullet did not hit any vital structures that were an immediate threat to life.”
Officials expect both teens to make a full recovery.
A 30-year-old woman injured was not hospitalized and the nature of her injury was not immediately known.
