Harris says the school is safe but remains on lockdown as officials worked to reunite students with their parents.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff said the suspect had been detained near Highland High School in Palmdale, 40 miles (65 kilometers) north of downtown Los Angeles. Students on the campus remained calm and texted their classmates, telling them to stay away from the area, and faculty members directed deputies throughout the campus, allowing them to clear the building faster, McDonnell said.

"Unfortunately, that may be a result of why we were able to to put an end to this so quickly was this rapid deployment and rapid response", said Capt. Darren Harris of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The student was shot in the arm but will make a full recovery, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said.

A shooting at Highland High School in Palmdale Friday left a student wounded and a former student in custody, authorities said. Authorities said the victim is a 15-year-old boy who was shot through the forearm and transported himself to a local medical center.

The shooting happened during "period zero", a time of extra classes before the school day's normal 7:30 a.m. start.

The suspect told his father that he shot his gun through the air, McDonnell said.

The suspect has been charged with one count of attempted murder, McDonnell said. Deputies searched the scene and found the report to be unfounded. As officers swarmed the library, more 911 calls came in reporting that gunshots were heard at an elementary school across town.

The FBI and agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives also responded to the scene. Student Pualani Revis told KABC-TV that students ran into her classroom saying there were gunshots going off.

Lydia Gilbert, a junior at Highland, said her mother was dropping her off when a student ran up and warned her there was a shooting.

The shooting prompted an immediate lockdown at the school.

Neymar said this season has been the least he's ever played, so he is rested for the World Cup that begins on June 14 in Moscow. I don't think there'd be any problems within the dressing room but for me, it would be a bit weird to see him back at Barca.
