They tweeted, "Our Los Angeles Officials from @LASchoolPolice @LASchools @LAPDRampart are addressing parents of yesterday's incident and ensuring our priority is the safety of their children here at Sal Castro Middle/Belmont High".

Police say the young student believed the weapon was a fake when she placed it in her book bag before arriving at Salvador Castro Middle school.

The most seriously injured victim - a 15-year-old boy - was shot in the left temple and rushed to Los Angeles County + USC Medical Center.

"They thought it was a toy gun, but then it shot", Urbina said.

Three others, including two children and 30-year-old woman suffered minor injuries which were not caused by the shooting.

The boy was taken to hospital and is said to be in a critical but stable condition.

A 12-year-old girl was booked on a charge of negligent discharge of a firearm after the shooting, police had said Thursday.

At the front gate of the school, McNair said she was directed to the back, which was blocked off.

It was sometime after 9 a.m. when Rosario Hernandez, 41, got a phone call from her 16-year-son, Jimmy Romero, telling her a shooting had occurred at his brother's school. The school has been declared safe, and we are communicating with parents of students at Castro Middle School, as well as neighboring campuses.

Investigators are trying to determine how she obtained the unregistered weapon, according to LAPD Deputy Chief Robert Arcos, who spoke to reporters Friday.

"She said, 'If I give you the gun will you hide it for me?'" he said.

The enrollment is 92 percent Latino, and most students are from low-income families.

The district has a policy which states random searches should be carried out daily with a metal detector wand.

A driver was killed in a car-to-car shooting in the Jefferson Park area of Los Angeles early Saturday, and authorities are searching for the man's killer.
