Los Angeles police say a shooting at a California middle school that left four students injured was accidental.

On Jan. 23 in Marshall County, Kentucky, a 15-year-old gunman shot 16 people at Marshall High School, killing two students, age 15.

The boy, who was shot in the head, is in critical but stable condition, according to the Capt. Erik Scott of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

"We need to find out how did that gun get into the school", Garcetti told the station, but stressed that the mental well-being of other students on campus is being addressed.

Thursday's shooting in Los Angeles is one of the earliest grade-school level school shootings of the year, amid increasing concerns over gun violence on campuses nationwide.

The 12-year-old girl considered a person of interest in the shooting reportedly "didn't mean it".

According to KTLA, the Los Angeles Police Department received a call of shots fired around 8:55 a.m. local time. Three other people had minor face or head injuries, some from broken glass, but weren't shot, officials said.

The father of a 12-year-old student said he came to the school after learning about the shooting. A 15-year-old girl with a gunshot wound to the wrist was taken to a hospital in fair condition, Scott said.

Madison said there's no information about injuries.

"They thought it was a toy gun, but then it shot", Urbina said.

"Our parents who are watching should be assured that their children are in great care", he added.

"Not safe, very insecure", said Anzueto, who said there were no metal detectors at the school.

Students and teachers also consider the event was unintentional, some even saying the girl brought the gun to show it to her colleagues and not to do something wrong with it.

The Los Angeles shooting marks the third school shooting taking place in the United States in the year 2018.

The school is now on lockdown, but officials said the normal school day will continue.

It is also the one of at least three shooting incidents at United States schools in recent weeks.
