1 student shot at high school in Taft, Calif.
TAFT, Calif. - One student has been shot at a high school in Taft, Calif., a community in the southern San Joaquin Valley.
Authorities say the 16-year-old student is in critical but stable condition.
Sheriff Donny Youngblood says the shooter is a student who walked into a class at Taft Union High School Thursday morning and shot the teen with a shotgun, and then fired at another student but missed.
A teacher suffered a minor pellet wound to the head.
Youngblood says the teacher tried to get other students out a back door, then he and another staff member engaged the shooter in conversation to distract him, and convinced him to put down the gun.
