Girl, 12, arrested after five injured in school shooting
A 15-year-old boy is in a serious condition after being shot in the head.
A 12-year-old girl is in police custody following a high school shooting that left a teenage student fighting for his life.
The 15-year-old boy is in a serious condition after being shot in the head during the incident at Sal Castro Middle School in Los Angeles, California.
The gunfire also wounded a 15-year-old girl, who is also being treated in hospital, after she was shot in the arm.
A 12-year-old girl and an 11-year-old boy also suffered minor injuries along with a 30-year-old woman.
A local TV news station showed footage of the 12-year-old being led out of the school in handcuffs.
The shootings are the most recent in a spate of incidents within schools in the US this year.
Last week in Texas a 16-year-old wounded a teenage girl after firing at her in a school playground and just a few days later a 15-year-old boy killed two students after shooting 20 people within a school in Kentucky.
