A high school student was wounded Tuesday in a shooting in Reseda, prompting the lockdown of his campus and another school several blocks away.

The shooting was reported about 12:50 p.m. in the 18400 block of Vanowen Street, near Canby Avenue. The victim was hospitalized in stable condition, said Sgt. Julie Spry of the Los Angeles School Police Department.

She did not know the victim's age but said he was a student at Zane Grey Continuation High School, which is located, along with Reseda High School, in the 18200 block of Kittredge Street, several blocks south of the shooting scene.

Both schools were temporarily locked down as officers conducted a sweep of the campus, Spry said.
