Shooting at Gardena High School South of LA - not a lot of info yet

As many as three people were injured Tuesday in what may have been an officer-involved shooting at Gardena High School, south of Los Angeles, FOX News reported.

According to KTTV-TV/FOX 11 in Los Angeles, police were apparently searching for a student who may have brought a gun to the campus

The shooter is reportedly a student who went into the school wearing all black, opening fire. They believe the gunman may still be on campus. While police search for the shooter, the high school is on lockdown and an elementary school directly across the street is also on lockdown.

  • The gunman is in custody. He looked like a little punk, maybe 14-15 yrs old. I wonder if this was Palins fault?

  • correct me if I am wrong, but Cali laws on handguns are pretty specific, aren't they?... Including the mandatory Handgun Safety Certificate/purchase through dealers only, etc.... So, I wonder if it will come down to a parental issue or illegally obtained firearm, which is also a parental involvement issue.. Either way, where the kids parents teaching responsibility? Ohh wait, enter SOME blaming society...

    LOL! Someone has to take the blame! Forget about the kid who brought the gun... it was probably Bush who made this thing happen. Whatevs, I'm glad they have the little jerk and no one was killed.
