A 14-year-old boy was arrested in Northern California for the non-fatal shooting of a 17-year-old at Grant Union High School in Sacramento.
Grant Union High School was placed on lockdown for approximately two hours as authorities responded to the targeted shooting between two students.
The 17-year-old victim suffered a gunshot wound to the arm, and though not life-threatening, required hospitalization.
Sacramento Police, in collaboration with the Twin Rivers Unified Police Department, swiftly arrested the 14-year-old suspect near the school after a ShotSpotter activation alerted them to the incident.
Authorities are actively investigating the motive behind the shooting, emphasizing that it was a targeted incident.
The Twin Rivers Unified School District expressed shock and sadness, promising psychological and counseling support for students and staff affected by the traumatic event.
Parents, like Sasha Vogt, described the incident as "trauma on top of trauma," underlining the emotional toll on the community and the urgent need for ongoing safety measures.
