HOUSTON (CBS Houston) A school shooting out at Taft High School in Kern County, California has left at least two wounded and one in police custody on Thursday morning.

As details are still forthcoming, reports indicate that the time of the shooting was just after 9:30 a.m., Los Angeles time. Further reports indicate that two individuals were wounded as a result of the  shooting.

CBSNEWS.com reports that one student is said to have been shot. Ray Pruitt, Kern County sheriff’s spokesman also stated that the suspect who was in police custody, is believed to be a student as well.

The student who was reportedly shot, was flown to a Bakersfield hospital. His condition was not known.
