Sheriff's deputies also headed to a second school, Manzanita Elementary School, a few miles away after receiving reports around 7:30 a.m. that people thought they heard gunfire, Boese said.

The Los Angeles Times said that the shooting occurred because of a dispute between the two students. "The student said he was only joking, but deputies later found two semiautomatic rifles, two handguns and 90 high-capacity magazines at the student's home".

Law enforcement says a 15-year-old was shot in the arm. The sheriff's department said deputies were on scene searching the campus, and the Highland principal tweeted that people should "stay clear of campus" while authorities assessed the situation.

The Orange County Register said that suspect was 14 and his rifle was confiscated by police.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department tweeted that the victim was hospitalized and in stable condition, and that the suspect was a male juvenile.

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.

She says there's no information about that caller and no confirmation of the report.

Parents and students were outside the school crying as investigators remained on campus.

"I was supposed to be going to school earlier than I was, but was late", she said. He said he heard one shot and turned. "And I'm locked up in one of the buildings now'".

The initial report of a gunman at Highland High School came in at 7:05 a.m. local time, and was followed by a report about a half hour later of shots fired near an elementary school in the area, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities placed both the high school and the elementary school on lockdown. Los Angeles police told CNN that they had responded to reports of a man with a gun on the campus. "Alexander, turn around, turn around, there's an active shooter.' And I didn't really have time to react to that because nearly immediately after that I heard one single gunshot very loud and very close by". "This is ridiculous - there's too many school shootings", said parent Tracy Reed, whose son texted her about the shooting at his school.
