Police officers locked down Sal Castro Middle School in Los Angeles after a shooting occurred in a classroom.

A 15-year-old boy hit in the head was transported to a trauma center in critical but stable condition, according to fire department spokesman Erik Scott.

The female suspected shooter, who authorities said was arrested, shot a male and a female student, both 15, the news channel reported.

"We know this a very traumatic incident for all the children involved, particularly inside that classroom", said Steven Zipperman, chief of the Los Angeles school system police department.

Police received a report of shots fired about 8:55 a.m. local time, according to LAPD Officer Drake Madison.

"The school has been declared safe at this point".

Sal Castro Middle School is near the city's Westlake district, roughly a couple of miles northwest of downtown, and it shares a campus with Belmont High School.

Student Melanie Valencia, 13, said the school did a random security search Thursday, but that she's never been checked. "You know what I mean, you really hear about things like this in the news, and just to hear that something like that happened so close to home, it scared the life out of me".
