Multiple Victims Reported In School Shooting In Los Angeles County UPDATE X3

Shortly after 8:00 a.m. local time shots were fired at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, California. Multiple victims have been reported and the shooter is at large. Students evacuate after shooting at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, California. https://t.co/D6PjO6Y4F7 pic.twitter.com/YD3iGA7Ol5 — NBC News (@NBCNews) November 14, 2019 Santa Clarita is largely rural. When I had my Arabian gelding, Scotty, he was stabled in Santa Clarita and I drove up from the west side of Los Angeles to ride him every Saturday and eat huevos rancheros afterwards. It’s a nice area, lots of nice folks, and lots of guns. It’s ranching country, so you will find a lot of guns. They’re necessary to protect the livestock. We’re not talking AR-15’s here, we’re talking shotguns. At this time, no word on what weapon the shooter used. Once again, our young people are traumatized in a manner that my generation didn’t have to deal with. This story will be updated as it develops. UPDATE 8:49 a.m. PST: NBC News is reporting multiple injuries, but no fatalities at this time. Multiple people were injured Thursday in a shooting at a Southern California high school, officials said. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said the suspected gunman, an Asian male wearing black clothing who was last seen at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, was at large. “ “This is an active shooter situation,” said a tweet from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Office. “If you live in neighborhoods anywhere near Saugus High, PLEASE LOCK DOORS and stay inside. If you see suspect, male dark clothing, in backyards, etc. CALL 911” Again, I cannot impress upon you too much how “nice” this community is. There’s a major amusement park, Six Flags, out here — this is all happening twenty miles away from where I’m writing — and people congregate and philosophize at the feed store, as they have for decades. Maybe the moral is, if it can happen in Santa Clarita, it truly can happen anywhere. UPDATE X2: 9:51 a.m. PST: The Los Angeles Times is reporting that the shooter is in custody at this time. He’s 15 and believed to be a student at the school. So far no fatalities, multiple injuries, a couple of victims critically injured. UPDATE X3: 11:52 a.m. PST: NPR is reporting one dead and two more in critical condition from this morning’s shooting. It’s ugly when this strikes a community. In recent tragedies, I’ve only read about them, seen them on the news, but this is just over the hill in Santa Clarita. At times like this the neighbors are all talking somberly and we’re all crestfallen. Its so greatly to be hoped that these tragedies can be averted in the future. They are devastating.
