Washington/Sputnik/UNI: Two students are dead after a gunman opened fire at Saugus High School in southern California, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said during a press conference on Thursday.

"We just received word that one of the 14-year-old victims at the hospital has also passed away just moments ago, so our fatalities now are two," Villanueva said.
The other victim is a 16-year-old girl, he added.

The sheriff also said victims including the suspect were taken to local hospitals with gunshot wounds.

Authorities saw evidence of school surveillance video showing the 16-year-old male student, whose birthday is today, pull a gun out of his backpack and shoot five other students before shooting himself in the head, according to Villanueva.

The suspect, who is in grave condition, used a .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol in the shooting, the sheriff added.  

Reacting to the incident, US President Donald Trump tweeted, "We continue to monitor the terrible events at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, California through our ongoing communications with Local, State, and Federal Authorities."
