Two students shot at Dorsey High School
LOS ANGELES, Calif.—A 15-year-old student was shot in the neck by a pellet gun and another male was hit in the elbow today at Dorsey High School, police said.
Police responded to a 911 call when an informant reported that someone shot two males on the football field in the 3500 block of Farmdale Avenue just before 5 p.m., said Los Angeles Police Sgt. Douglas Bowler. The 15-year-old student was a member of the Dorsey High football team and was taken to an area hospital for treatment, he said.
Bowler said the incident is still under investigation and police did not know the circumstances surrounding the shooting. Bowler said police believe one suspect shot both males, but no arrests have been made.
