At least six people were injured during a shooting at a public high school in California Thursday morning — and a teen gunman is being sought, reports said.
Emergency responders were seen wheeling out several victims on stretchers following the 7:30 a.m. incident at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department tweeted about the shooting at the school, which is about 40 miles north of Los Angeles.
“Please avoid the area,” the department said in a tweet. “Male Asian suspect black clothing last seen at the location. Deputies on scene and still responding. Avoid the area Further information to follow.”
Authorities were looking for the shooter, who was described as a 15-year-old boy wearing a black hat and black clothing, sheriff’s officials told the Los Angeles Times.
The incident caused the lockdown of several area schools.
Bianca Salas, who works just two blocks from the school told The Post, that she heard the gunshots ring out.
“We heard gunshot earlier this morning and saw a bunch of Saugus High School students running from the scene,” Salas said, adding that the students were running “in all directions” off the school campus.
