Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station officials reported one teen is in custody and one teen is recovering from a gunshot wound after an early-morning shooting Sunday in Santa Clarita.
Deputies responded to a report of a shooting around 1:54 a.m., according to Deputy Kabrina Borbon of the SCV Sheriff’s Station.
“A male juvenile was arrested for the negligent discharge of a firearm,” she said Monday.
The victim of the shooting was also a male juvenile, she added. The identification of the suspect is not being released because he is a minor.
There was no information about the nature of the victim’s injuries nor the location of the shooting. The injuries did not appear to be life-threatening based on a video posted to social media that showed the juvenile gunshot victim being loaded into an ambulance.
Reports on social media indicated he was injured and then taken by friends to the hospital.
First responders “intercepted” the car he was being driven to the hospital in, per a video posted online that shows a teenager being loaded into an ambulance near Commuter Way and Soledad Canyon Road.
Fire officials said they were dispatched to the scene at 1:58 a.m. and arrived on the scene seven minutes later.
SCV Sheriff’s Station officials said the incident was being investigated by the station’s COBRA Team, which stands for Career Offenders, Burglary, Robbery, Assault.
The juvenile suspect is still in custody as of Monday morning, per officials.
