Five people were wounded, including a student shot in the head, when a gun was sacked in a Los Angeles middle school classroom, police have said, with a 12-year-old girl taken into custody over the incident. "The school has been declared safe, and we are communicating with parents of students at Castro Middle School, as well as neighboring campuses".

The shooting happened at Sal Castro Middle School and was reported to police at about 8:55 a.m., according to the network. Another 15-year-old girl was hit in the wrist.

"They thought it was a toy gun, but then it shot", Urbina said.

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

A 15-year-old boy who was shot in the head was in critical condition, and a 15-year-old girl who was shot in the arm was listed as stable, Los Angeles police said late Thursday. She had seen news of the shooting on TV and came to get her daughter, who is a student at the middle school.
