The shooting comes after California courts just ruled that citizens have no right to carry firearms and claimed Americans shouldn’t be able to defend themselves. This shooting proves, once again, that liberals couldn’t be more wrong if they tried.
It’s still unclear if anyone was injured during the attack, but witnesses who spoke with CNN said they heard gunshots and saw students running from the school building toward safety.
CNN reports the suspect is a male and was apprehended by police near a grocery store in Palmdale.
School District Superintendent Raul Maldonado has also confirmed to police and the media that there was a school shooter on campus, but did not provide any details about the suspect or potential injuries that may have incurred.
Ricky Munoz told CNN that less than one minute after he dropped his two younger brothers off at the high school, he received a phone call saying there were gunshots and to come back and get them.
“About a minute later, I get a call from them saying there were gunshots and they asked to be picked up,” Munoz said.
Nadine Luke said her daughter called her screaming that she had heard gunshots. The student was in her Reserve Officers’ Training Corps class, and said students and teachers began putting desks in front of the classroom doors and windows to provide cover.
“All authorities are telling us right now is that they are working on the situation,” Luke said. “The only thing I want right now is to have my daughter right here.”
The school’s principal posted a message on the school’s Twitter account, telling people to stay away from the campus and that he will provide information soon.
Law enforcement is working to assess the situation. Please stay clear of campus. Will update as soon as have more information.
