He says she told him that the gun was in her backpack and that it accidentally went off when she dropped the bag. He told the Los Angeles Times that he thought it was an accident. One of the most well-known cases was Brenda Spencer, who targeted Cleveland Elementary School in San Diego in 1979.

Throughout the morning and early afternoon Thursday, scores of parents anxiously awaited word on their children. "They need to do it more often". It happened in an elective class with students from different grades, LA School Police Chief Steven Zipperman said.

The 15-year-old boy is expected to fully recover.

In 2014, a 17-year-old girl in Pennsylvania was arrested after cops discovered she was planning an attack on her high school and wanted to be "the first female shooter".

"Our children now see more shootings and deaths than we ever did in my lifetime", said Inez Beckon-English, the hospital's assistant director of clinical social work. Doctors said the bullet didn't hit anything vital or life-threatening.

Dr. Carl Richard Chudnofsky says the youth is doing well.

The girl wounded in the wrist also remained hospitalised but was described as resting comfortably. TV video from helicopters showed a dark-haired girl in a sweatshirt being led from the school in handcuffs as anxious parents and family members gathered on a street corner, many crying and talking on their phones as they waited. The school has about 365 students in grades 6 to 8 and nearly all are Hispanic and many are from low-income families. The student remains in intensive care. He said he heard a gunshot in the next classroom and knew the suspect. It wasn't immediately clear whether she was the student in custody, whom police hadn't formally declared a suspect.

Police said a 15-year-old boy was shot in the temple and was reported to be in stable, but critical condition.

"Not safe, not safe, very insecure", she said.

"Every responsible gun owner needs to take heed".

The campus is on lockdown as police conducted a search of the middle school, according to LAPD.
