A shooting at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita left at least one dead and several injured. 

All of the victims were students, and the gunman was also a member of the student body, Sheriff Alex Villanueva of Los Angeles County told NBC in Los Angeles. 

The local hospital reported one female died and two males in critical condition. 

“When I first heard about [the shooting] I got goosebumps and my heart dropped for the victims and community,” senior Libby Kondik said. 

A Saugus High School sophomore said he grew up in Santa Clarita, and it was a peaceful, “laid-back” community. The students at Saugus had undergone active shooter drills, and he “grew up knowing this is a thing that happens.”
