School Standoff Ends in California

OROVILLE, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities say a student gunman who fired shots in a northern California high school is in custody.

Police say there were no injuries resulting from the incident. A statement from the county says the student had taken hostages, but that all of them were released.

The statement did not say how many students had been taken hostage.

Schools in the Oroville Union High School District were locked down after the shots were fired while deputies tried to negotiate with the student.
