LOS ANGELES (CBS) —  After a fight near Los Angeles High School Friday morning, one teen decided not to turn the other cheek.

A teenager was in custody Saturday for allegedly shooting a 15-year-old boy as he walked to Los Angeles High School.

The shooting at or near 12th Street and Rimpau Boulevard occurred about 8 a.m. Friday, and a suspect was later arrested and taken to a juvenile lockup, Los Angeles police Lt. Bill Heard of Wilshire Station said.

The high school at 4650 W. Olympic Boulevard was locked down for about an hour after the shooting, police said.

The wounded boy, whose name police withheld, suffered a bullet wound to the buttocks, he said.

A motive for the shooting was not disclosed. The two apparently knew one another. Police said the victim was crossing a road and got into an argument with someone in a white pickup truck moments before the shooting.

Detectives later arrested the suspect at his home, Heard said.

    ….. But it was the white man who continues to allow for weak gun laws. When it comes to the root cause of a problem, There’s usually a white man to blame… Go ahead and pick a topic and see whose to blame.

      Those weak white men your speak of are liberals. White people don’t cause problems. We escalate them.

    Guess who gained the most from building those ghetto neighborhoods. And guess who would profit from CCWs…. The man!

    I Guess That This Incident Brings Some Validity To The Phrase “I’ll Shoot Your Ass!!”
