VALLEJO, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California high school staff member was shot Tuesday after breaking up a fight on campus, authorities said.
The Vallejo High School staff member was struck at least once and is expected to survive, police said.
The staff member had just broken up a fight among several students and “some unknown males” when the shooting occurred around 3:45 p.m. Some of the brawlers fled in a sedan, firing back toward the remaining group before they left, police said.
“This is a senseless act of violence committed by some individuals who do not value human life,” Vallejo Police Chief Shawny Williams said in a news release. “Enough is enough. It’s a sad day anyone is shot in front of our children at school where they should feel safe.”
