NEW YORK – At least one person was killed and several others injured after a gunman opened fire at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, a California city north of Los Angeles, Thursday morning.
Law enforcement officers said a suspect was in custody and being treated in a hospital. They did not reveal the identity of the arrested person.
Reports say at least five people were injured during the incident and were shifted to Henry Mayo Hospital. Three victims – two males and one female – are said to be in critical condition.
The police responded to a shooting at a high school in Santa Clarita 7:05 a.m. local time.

Sheriff Alex Villanueva of Los Angeles County told NBC in Los Angeles that all of the victims were students and that the assailant was also a member of the student body.
