Police are negotiating with a student gunman who fired shots inside a northern California high school.
Up to 10 students are being held in the bandroom at Las Plumas High School in Oroville, Calif. by a student with a gun, according to preliminary and unconfirmed reports from the police scanner. No injuries have been reported.
A student fired shots inside a high school and held three students hostage for over an hour before he was taken into custody Friday morning, authorities said. No one was injured.
The 17-year-old student initially took about 30 students hostage in a band room at Las Plumas High School around 9 a.m., said Police Capt. Jerry Smith. He quickly released most of them, but held three students for about an hour longer before he was arrested, Smith said.
The gunman's only demand to deputies during the standoff was that they "back off," he said.
