Los Angeles School Police were called to Santee High School at 1921 Maple Ave around 2 p.m. LASPD spokesman Rudy Perez told Fox News that the shooting occurred next to the school’s football field.
Officers arrived on scene and found a male student of the school with an apparent gunshot wound in his upper left leg. The officers applied a tourniquet to his leg and he was transferred to a local hospital where he remains in stable condition, Perez said.
His identity has not been released because of his age.
Officers also found another gunshot victim, a male adult, who had been grazed by a bullet. It is unclear if both injuries are related. The second was transported to a hospital for treatment.
The suspect remains at large. An LAPD officer told Fox News that the suspect is a Hispanic male wearing a dark blue shirt, blue jeans, dark shoes and last seen on a light blue bicycle.
Lockdowns at the school were lifted around 3:15 p.m., FOX 11 reported.
Fox News reached out to the school district who referred all questions to the authorities.
