Two teenagers and a man were arrested in connection with a Friday shooting at a Los Angeles High School that left one person in critical condition and another with leg wounds, LAPD officials said today.
Details about the three suspects were not immediately available.
Around 3:30 p.m. Friday, two males – one, a 17-year-old student at LA High School; the other, a 20-year-old – were shot near Olympic and Rimpaud boulevards, said Officer Rosario Herrera, a LAPD spokeswoman.
One victim is in critical condition wiith a gunshot wound to his back and remains hospitalized.
The other victim was treated and released with a gunshot wound to the leg.
The incident happened around the time Los Angeles High School was being dismissed. While the school was not put on lock down, officials ushered students out in a “controlled release.”
Police said the shooting was the result of ongoing gang conflict between two students.
