4 students, 1 adult injured in BB gun shooting at Sun Valley High School

Five people - four of them students - were injured by shots from what's thought to be a pellet gun Friday afternoon at or near a high school in Sun Valley, authorities said.


The shooting was reported just before 3:30 p.m. in the 9100 block of Telfair Avenue, where Sun Valley High School is located, according to the Los Angeles police and fire departments.

Four students -- all boys -- and a 34-year-old man sustained non-life-threatening injuries from some kind of non-lethal weapon and were taken to a hospital, Amy Bastman of the Los Angeles Fire Department said.

A Los Angeles Police Department spokesman said it appeared the victims were shot with a pellet gun, but referred additional questions to school police, who were investigating.

It was not immediately clear if anyone was taken into a custody or if a weapon was recovered.
