Turbo Her, an 18-year-old senior who was in the drama class where the incident took place, said other students in the class initially thought it was a joke. “I said, `Oh no, this is a real gun,”‘ Her said. He said the student fired one shot into the ceiling. Authorities said at least two shots were fired from the .22-caliber handgun the boy was carrying. “The girls were crying and hysterical,” Her said. “He wanted to scare them, to let them know it’s real. The girls were freaking out.” Eventually, the student told his classmates that “anyone who’s scared can leave,” and about 26 students left. OROVILLE – A 17-year-old student surrendered peacefully Friday at a Northern California high school after taking more than two dozen classmates and a teacher hostage in a drama class and firing at least one shot, authorities said. No one was injured in the incident at Las Plumas High School in Oroville, about 80 miles north of Sacramento, Butte County Sheriff Perry Reniff said. All student hostages and the substitute teacher were released a little more than an hour after the incident began around 9:15 a.m. Schools in the Oroville Union High School District were locked down while Deputy Will Brewton, who is stationed at the high school and is a trained hostage negotiator, talked to the hostile student on a cell phone. Smith said during a press briefing that three girls were kept behind in the class, but authorities did not know why they were chosen. The boy’s name was not released because of his age. Smith said he was a student at the school.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img
