A girl believed to be 12 years old accidentally opened fire Thursday in a middle school classroom, critically wounding one classmate and injuring three others, authorities said. A 30-year-old woman also was injured, though she was not shot.

Television footage has shown police leading a girl away from the school in Los Angeles after they were called to reports of gunshots in a classroom shortly before 9am. "It's still under investigation, still fluid".

The victims, a boy and girl, are both 15 years old, police said.

Mayor Eric Garcetti said at the scene it was unclear if the shooting was intentional or accidental.

Ms Anzueto said there were no metal detectors at the school.

More than 33,000 people die annually in the United States from gun-related deaths - two thirds of them suicides - according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"Not safe, not safe, very insecure", she said.

The two students who were shot are expected to survive, Sgt. Julie Spry, a Los Angeles School Police Department spokesperson, confirmed to CBS Los Angeles. About 365 students attend grades 6-8 on the campus. "I assure you if we find out it came from an adult from a home that the proper prosecutorial procedures will occur".
