Saugus High student carried a ‘ghost gun’ to school
SANTA CLARITA – (INT) – The Los Angeles County sheriff says the weapon a 16-year-old boy used in the Saugus High School shootings was homemade.
The 45-calibre pistol was a so-called ‘ghost gun’ that was not registered, Sheriff Alex Villanueva said Thursday.
It’s not known who assembled the gun or how it came into the teen’s possession.
Sheriff Villanueva also disclosed that the boy’s father kept a small arsenal of weapons including some that were not registered.
The boy took the one to school and for still – unexplained reasons – emptied the gun on nearby students and saved the last bullet for himself.
Two students died and three others were hurt during the 16 second incident.
