Student shot at rural California high school

TAFT, Calif. - People who know a student suspected of opening fire with a shotgun in a high school classroom in Taft, Calif., say he's a loner often teased by classmates.

Authorities haven't released the name of the suspect in Thursday's wounding of a 16-year-old boy at Taft Union High School.

But people in the small San Joaquin Valley town who know his identity say he was teased for his small stature.

They describe him as smart but say he sometimes said irreverent things that brought scorn from classmates.

Neighbor Trish Montes says her son used to work at the school and tutored the student last year. She says her son felt sorry for him and would sometimes walk with him between classes.
