Update 1:41 PM CST

This morning there was another school shooting at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, California.

The school started at 6:55 a.m. The shooting seems to have started around 7:50 am which is when the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff posted on their Twitter account stating:

“The shooter had been described as a “male Asian suspect” wearing black clothing who was last seen walking away from the scene, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office said. He was believed to be a student at the school, NBCLA reported. A weapon was recovered at the scene, but it wasn’t immediately clear what type it was or if the shooter had used more than one weapon during the attack, The New York Times reported.” via

We don’t have many more details to go on at the moment. It is uncertain whether the shooting took place inside a school building, on school grounds or near the school. Schools in the area were on lockdown for about an hour while police searched for the gunman.
