Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Office deputies were searching the grounds of Highland High School in Palmdale, Officer Nicole Nishida, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office, told ABC News.

A teen suspected of shooting a fellow student at a high school in Palmdale is taken into custody on May 11, 2018.

Investigators were trying to determine what led up to the shooting and whether the boys knew each other.

Sierra says someone also called to report shots fired in the vicinity of Manzanita Elementary School about 7 miles (11 kilometers) away.

In March, a teacher accidentally discharged a gun during a public safety class at Seaside High School in Seaside, California, injuring a student.

The suspect in custody is 14 years old, as is the victim, according to law enforcement officials.

The boy injured was also 14, and police stated that he was taken to the hospital after being shot in the arm.

California authorities arrested a 14-year-old student after police say he shot another 14-year-old student in the arm near a high school in Palmdale, NBC Los Angeles reported.

Harris says the school is safe but remains on lockdown as officials worked to reunite students with their parents. "They basically said, 'Mr". The school is on lockdown, students were told to shelter in place and parents were told to stay away from the area.

Firefighter-paramedics told NBC Los Angeles they received a report of one person with a gunshot wound, though any injuries couldn't be independently confirmed. Student Pualani Revis told KABC-TV that students ran into her classroom saying there were gunshots going off.

It wasn't clear Friday afternoon if the shooting happened outside or inside the school.

Lydia Gilbert, a junior at Highland, said her mother was dropping her off when a student ran up and warned her there was a shooting. "Alexander, turn around, turn around, there's an active shooter.' And I didn't really have time to react to that because nearly immediately after that I heard one single gunshot very loud and very close by".

Highland High student Katharina Smith, 16, said she was driving to the school when she saw "a ton of police racing toward school".
