A gun in a backpack goes off in a classroom. The 17-year-old suspect is arrested about an hour later as anxious parents gather at the school. One of the wounded is listed in critical condition.
Third-period health class was just beginning Tuesday at Gardena High School when a 17-year-old boy walked in and set his backpack down on a desk. In the chaos that followed, accounts differed about precisely what happened. But this much was clear: A gun had discharged, apparently by accident; two students were wounded, one critically; and the campus of 3,100 was sent into a tense, frightening lockdown.
