Middle School Shooting Was Accidental — LAPD

03 February 2018

The 12-year-old girl arrested for the incident at Sal Castro Middle School is being charged with negligent discharge of a firearm.

[LAPD Deputy Chief] Arcos said that the 12-year-old has an attorney and is not talking to investigators. A 12-year-old female student was taken into police custody. The two 15-year-old students who suffered gunshot wounds are expected to fully recover. Both victims are 15 years old.

A 15-year-old student was shot in the head.

KTLA-TV reports the shooting Thursday morning at Salvador Castro Middle School in the city's Westlake neighborhood involved a semiautomatic weapon.

Most accidental shootings involve someone actually handling firearms, as opposed to guns getting dropped, said Pete Gagliardi, a former longtime agent with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. The shooting happened at Sal Castro Middle School and was reported to police at about 8:55 a.m., according to the network.

The boy was initially listed in critical condition but doctors said that the bullet didn't hit anything vital or cause any life-threatening injury.

She remains in Los Angeles County Central Juvenile Hall and is scheduled to enter a plea on Monday.

Los Angeles School Police Department Chief Steve Zipperman on Thursday declined to discuss the type of security measures in place at Castro Middle School.

Two students were hit directly by gunfire and three other victims were hit by shrapnel, police said.

Los Angeles police said they do not believe the shooting was intentional. "If any of the schools in the area need counseling support we will get support right away for students or employees".

A student is accused of shooting 16 people - killing two - on January 23, at western Kentucky's Marshall County High School in Benton.

Benjamin Urbina, a seventh grader in the classroom when the shooting unfolded, told reporters later the girl did not know the firearm she'd brought to school was real.

Jocelyn Lopez said her sister texted that she was OK, but had "just heard something pop inside the classroom".

It is also one of at least three shooting incidents at U.S. schools in recent weeks.
