Summary: A 14-year-old in Palmdale, California was arrested for shooting another classmate on Friday. One person was shot in the arm, and a teen was detained.

Dr. Petrik said the reports of multiple casualties and dozens of injuries caused the hospital to virtually shut down the operating and emergency rooms for an onslaught of victims.

The rifle used at Highland High School in Palmdale was found in a field near the school. A 12-year-old girl was booked for negligent discharge of a firearm in that shooting, which was considered "unintentional", Los Angeles police said.
