1 student shot at high school in Calif.

Authorities in California say a student was shot and wounded at a San Joaquin Valley high school today and a suspect was taken into custody.

The shooting occurred at about 9 a.m. at Taft Union High School, an oil and agricultural community about 120 miles northwest of Los Angeles.

Kern County Sheriff's Department spokesman Ray Pruitt says the student who was shot was flown to a hospital in Bakersfield.

There was no immediate word on the victim's condition.

Pruitt says a suspect is in custody, adding the person is believed to be a student.

He says it's believed a shotgun was used in the attack.

KERO-TV Bakersfield reported that the station received phone calls from people inside the school who hid in closets.

It was not immediately clear how many students are enrolled at the high school, which teaches 9th through 12th grades.
