The unfortunate incident took place in the parking lot of a Sacramento high school. A 14-year-old boy was rushed to the hospital with a gunshot wound to his arm. Thankfully, the injury wasn’t life-threatening.

According to Sacramento Police Officer Cody Capley, both students involved in the shooting are students of Grant Union High School in Sacramento. After the shooting took place, the school was put on lockdown for over two hours. The police believe that the shooting wasn’t a random one, and they are investigating the 14-year-old’s motive.

A ShotSpotter that was activated near the high school alerted the Sacramento Police Department to the shooting. Sacramento police teamed up with the Twin Rivers Unified Police Department and immediately arrested the 14-year-old suspect.
