Highland High School Shooting: Victim Shot in Arm, 14-Year-Old Detained

Los Angeles County Sheriff's officials said they arrested the suspect, also a student, and confiscated the weapon. Sheriff's officials said the boy was in stable condition. He is a former student who recently transferred to another school, the sheriff added.

The suspected shooter was later arrested off campus grounds, and a rifle recovered. "A bunch of kids started running out to me, towards me, with very panicked looks on their faces", Alexander said.

Nishida said sheriff's deputies were also called to a nearby elementary school after reports of gunfire but found no evidence of any crime.

The suspect in custody is 14 years old, as is the victim, according to law enforcement officials. Students on the campus remained calm and texted their classmates, telling them to stay away from the area, and faculty members directed deputies throughout the campus, allowing them to clear the building faster, McDonnell said.

Jayden Madise, a junior, said he was sitting with friends in an open area on the first floor when he heard a loud noise.

The initial reports of a possible school shooting drew immediate attention from major news outlets and cable TV networks.
