TAFT, CALIFORNIA—Thursday, January 10 at around 9 a.m a yet unidentified 16 year-old student entered a science classroom at Taft Union High school, brandishing a 12-guage shot gun. The teen gunman shot one student critically injuring him before shooting and missing a second target. 

The science teacher, Ryan Heber, was able to distract the teen long enough for students to be evacuated from the classroom.  Heber and one other school official, Campus Supervisor Kim Lee Fields, were able to convince the gunman to relinquish the firearm. Heber suffered a minor pellet wound to the head and the wounded student remains in critical, but stable condition after being airlifted to a hospital in Bakersfield. 

The suspect, whose identity has not yet been released, is now in police custody. During interrogation, the teen gunman alleged that his intended targets had previously bullied him, according to the Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood.

Youngblood added that the teen will be charged as a juvenile for attempted murder, during a press conference held Thursday afternoon.  

Taft Union High school does have an armed guard stationed at the school, but on the day of the shooting the officer was snowed in and unable to report for duty.
