Santa Clarita, California, Saugus High School Shooting

It was a Thursday morning (11-14-2019) when a teenage gunman started shooting at a group of students, leaving two victims dead and three wounded before he shot himself in the head. The students who died were a 16-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy. Three other students — two girls, 14 and 15, and a 14-year-old boy — were also shot in the school's quad before classes began Thursday. All of the victims and the suspect attended Saugus High School in Santa Clarita. It was said that the shooting took 16 seconds from start to finish.

It was reported that the shooter opened his backpack and pulled a .45 semi-automatic pistol and started shooting at a group of students. When the authorities found the weapon, they said that there were no bullets left in it. The suspect named Nathaniel Tennosuke Berhow is an Asian male, and he just turned 16 this Thursday. It was reported that the suspect survived shooting himself and is in the hospital, but he's the condition. It is terrible. Investigators said that they believed the shooter was alone, and they still haven't figured out a motive for his actions.

Some students witnessed the shooting and are shaken up from what they saw. One student said that she was working with her homework and saw people running, so she went out and saw this person lying down, and she saw blood all over the floor. She was so scared and probably traumatized by this tragedy. There are more stories out there on what happened that day. They canceled school for Friday, and the neighboring schools are on lockdown and also the Saugus High School.

For the victims that are injured of this shooting we pray that you make a fast recovery. For the families of the victims that were killed in the shooting, please accept our heartfelt sympathies on the loss of your loved one.
