17-year-old accused of attempted murder after shooting at California high school


A 17-year-old Victorville resident was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder on Thursday, April 29, after authorities said he shot into a crowd during a confrontation at Victor Valley High.

One person, an 18-year-old student, was struck in a foot. A second person was injured in the fight., the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said.

The incident happened around noon. Deputies responding to a report of shots fired learned that several boys were arguing in the parking lot of the school and started fighting as they moved onto a street, a news release said. During the fight, the 17-year-old fired three shots toward the crowd, striking the one person before fleeing.

That victim was treated at a hospital and released. A 16-year-old was treated at the scene for his injuries.

As deputies made sure the school grounds were safe, detectives that included the gang unit were identifying the suspect. The shooter, who does not attend the school, was arrested at his home nearby.

The teen, who is not being identified because he is a minor, was also booked on suspicion of threatening a crime with intent to terrorize, being a minor in possession of a concealed weapon and discharging a firearm in a school zone, the release said.
