A 16-year-old boy shot five people Thursday morning at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, California, killing two before shooting himself in the head, according to the Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Department.
Ambulances were seen leaving the 2,300-student school just as the school day was to be getting starting. Students were seen being escorted from campus with their hands raised.
As of 8:30 a.m. local time, police were warning residents in the area of the school that the suspect was not in custody and to be on the lookout for a teenager dressed in black.
Two other schools -- Rosedell Elementary and Highland Elementary -- were locked down as authorities searched for the shooter.
