    A suspected gunman has been detained after the reported shooting early in the morning at the high school in Palmdale, California, CNN reported.

    Multiple people have reportedly called 911, saying that a man with a gun was at the school.

    The Los Angeles County Sheriff's office said earlier that multiple deputies were responding to a possible shooting at Highland High School.

    Police have also investigated reports of shots heard at the nearby Manzanita Elementary School, but the sheriff's department said in a subsequent Twitter post that the school was clear of any shooters.

    Twitter and Facebook users have been posting tweets, warning about the incident.

    On February 14, Nikolas Cruz, a student who had been expelled for "disciplinary reasons," is alleged to have entered his school in Parkland, Florida, with an AR-15 rifle and opened fire, killing 17 people and injuring 14 more.
