Another School Shooting Happened This Morning in California
After the horrific school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School less than a month ago, and the school shooting threats that shut down Genesee and Lapeer county schools, another shooting has taken place. This time it occurred at Taft Union High School, about 120 miles northwest of Los Angeles. As tragic as any school shooting is, there is some good news. As of now, there is no word of any fatalities.
The shooting at the school took place around 9am this morning (Thursday) in the Science Building. One student who was shot has been airlifted to a hospital in Bakersfield. No word yet on his condition. A teacher has also been shot, but his injuries were minor.
Kern County Sheriff Department Spokesman Ray Pruitt said that they do have a suspect in custody, and it's believed that he is a student at the school. Parents have been asked to pick up students at the school's football field.
