Suspect Arrested Saugus High School Shooting

About an hour after the shooting at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita was reported at 8 a.m., authorities said they had located the suspected shooter and that the person is “no longer a threat.”

The Los Angeles County sheriff’s department earlier said the suspected gunman was an Asian male wearing black clothing who was last seen at the high school.

Multiple people were injured, at least two of them critically, in a shooting at a Southern California high school on Thursday morning, officials said.

Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital tweeted that it has received two patients in critical condition and that other patients were en route to the hospital.

At least six students have been hospitalized after a classmate opened fire Thursday morning at a high school in Santa Clarita.

Santa Clarita High School Active Shooter

“This is an active shooter situation,” said a tweet from the Santa Clarita Valley sheriff’s office before the suspect was located. “If you live in neighborhoods anywhere near Saugus High, PLEASE LOCK DOORS and stay inside. If you see suspect, male dark clothing, in backyards, etc. CALL 911.”

“Parents, deputies are on the scene everywhere protecting your children,” said a tweet from the sheriff’s office.

The Santa Clarita Valley sheriff’s office tweeted just before 8 a.m. local time to avoid the area of Saugus High School, which is in the county of Los Angeles about 40 miles north of the city of Los Angeles. Minutes later, the office said people were reporting that shots had been fired at the school.

Saugus was placed on lockdown as were neighboring elementary schools and all of the schools in the William S. Hart Union High School District, officials said.

Aerial video showed students with hands raised being escorted by deputies from the school of about 2,300 students. They were taken to school buses with armed deputies on board.

A reunification area was set up for parents at a park about three miles from the school.
