The shooter entered a class he was a student in and shot one 16 y.o. boy. The teacher in the class is being called a hero for talking to the shooter while students fled the classroom through a back door. The shooter reportedly attempted to shoot a 2nd student who he named but the teacher apparently prevented it. As the teacher was talking to the shooter an unarmed campus supervisor approached and began talking to him as well. The shooter eventually put the gun down at which point police had reached the scene and arrested him. The teacher was injured in the head by buckshot but declined treatment at the scene. Taft Union High usually has an armed School Resource Office on campus but he was not there today because he was snowed in at home.
Finally, the media on scene claims that multiple parents have told them that a student at Taft Union was suspended last year for making a "hit list." Some are claiming that individual is the shooter in today's incident but police have not offered any confirmation of this.
