Three others suffered minor injuries due to shrapnel or broken glass. A 12-year-old girl was detained at Sal Castro Middle School on charges of negligent discharge of a firearm on school grounds, the official told ABC Eyewitness News.

About 8:55 a.m., police received a report of shots fired in the 1500 block of West 2nd Street, according to Officer Drake Madison of the Los Angeles Police Department.

The boy is in a critical condition after receiving gunshot wounds to the head and and the condition of the girl, who suffered a wrist injury, was described as "fair".

"You must store it safely and keep it out of access for any child to reach", Feuer said.

Doctors say the most seriously injured victim of a Los Angeles middle school shooting has a good medical prognosis.

Two students were shot and at least three others were injured after a shooting at a Los Angeles middle school.

Los Angeles police spokeswoman Wendy Reyes confirmed that one person was taken into custody, but could not immediately provide details on the suspect. Shaken parents were permitted to take their children home early if they wished.

Aerial video on local television showed a girl being led out of the school in handcuffs. "They thought it was a fake gun", said Benjamin, a 12-year-old seventh-grader, whose guardian requested the police to keep his identity anonymous.

Claudia Anzueto said her 12-year-old son was crying when he called her from a borrowed cellphone.

This is at any rate the third United States school shooting in recent week. He also said that after the incident, he learned that his daughter was bullied at school.

The suspected shooter is in police custody, a Los Angeles Police Department official said.
