LOS ANGELES– Two people are in custody after a shooting in Van Nuys that injured two and put a nearby charter school on lockdown, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The shooting was reported around 12:10 p.m. in the area of Vanowen Street and Van Nuys Boulevard, an LAPD spokeswoman told FOX 5 broadcast partner KTLA.

Multiple LAPD patrol vehicles and Los Angeles Fire Department ambulances responded to the high school and on campus, according to KTLA.

The location is across the street from CHAMPS Charter High School, but the shooting did not take place on campus, LAPD Sgt. Barry Montgomery said at an afternoon news conference.

When they arrived, police discovered two victims, identified only as a male student and a female school employee, he said.

Both were transported and in stable condition, according to Los Angeles Fire Department Chief Trevor Richmond.

Meanwhile, police set up a perimeter and the school was placed on lockdown as a precautionary measure, Montgomery told KTLA.

Two people were taken into custody and a gun was recovered at the scene.

CHAMPS Charter High School’s lockdown has been lifted, according to LAPD.
