California high school shooting

Another school shooting, this time in Taft, California when a 16 year old student walked into a class armed with a shotgun Thursday morning and shot another teen. That student remains hospitalized in critical condition. The shooter fired at another student but missed.

A teacher suffered a minor pellet wound to the head while trying to get other students out a back door. Then, he and another staff member engaged the shooter in conversation to distract him, and convinced him to put down the gun.
