SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (Reuters) - A California high school student pulled a .45 caliber semiautomatic handgun from his backpack and fired on fellow students as classes began on Thursday, killing two and wounding three others.

The teenaged gunman survived the self-inflicted gunshot to the head and was in grave condition, law enforcement officials said.

“Video clearly shows the subject in the quad, withdraw a gun from his backpack, shoot and wound five people and then shoot himself,” Captain Kent Wegener of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told reporters.

The two slain students were a 16-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy. Two other girls, aged 14 and 15, were wounded, as was a 14-year old boy, Wegener said.

Investigators said they did not yet know what could have driven the student to carry out the shooting at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, 40 miles (65 km) north of Los Angeles.
