SANTA ROSA, Calif. — One person was wounded in a shooting outside a high school in Santa Rosa Tuesday morning, police said.

The shooting happened just across the street from Ridgeway High School around 9 a.m., according to KRON. The 17-year-old victim was taken to the hospital with a stomach wound, officials said.

The shooting happened off the campus after a fight at a nearby intersection, police said.  The school was locked down, along with nearby Santa Rosa High School and Santa Rosa Junior College. Officers were seen searching the campuses for signs of the shooter. Helicopter video showed the officers pulling a group of students out of class with their hands on their heads, patting some of them down and questioning them.

Ridgeway is a continuation school adjacent to the Santa Rosa campus, according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat. The newspaper said the shooting appeared to be an isolated attack and there weren’t reports of recurring or widespread gunfire.

Police eventually detained a suspect in a classroom at Ridgeway High School, though the weapon had not been recovered, KRON reported.
