A schoolboy walked into his school and shot four people, killing one, before turning the gun on himself on his 16th birthday.
The unnamed teenager opened fire with a semi-automatic pistol at an indoor ‘quad’ area of Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, California around 7: 45am PST Thursday.
He then shot himself in the head, but survived his wounds, and is gravely ill in hospital.
One of the suspect’s four victims, a 16 year-old girl, died in hospital around 90 minutes after being shot.
Another boy is in a critical condition, while two other victims are described as being in a good condition.
