Two students shot at Salvador Castro Middle School one in critical condition. Suspect in custody

Sgt. Edward Bernal of the Los Angeles School Police Department said two students may have been shot in a classroom, and that the victims are being treated by paramedics.

Police arrested the female student and recovered a gun after the shooting that happened just before 9:00am (local time) at Salvador B Castro Middle School, west of the city's downtown.

Another classmate, 12-year-old Jordan Valenzuela told The Associated Press that he made contact with the suspect after the gun went off.

A student is accused of shooting 16 people - killing two - on January 23, at western Kentucky's Marshall County High School in Benton.

It was not immediately clear how many students were in the classroom at the time of the shooting.

Shallin Lopez was actually inside the room when the shooting occurred, but said she didn't see a gun.
