Kayla's Morning Kickstart: yesterday's shooting, impeachment and the plague
California school shooting
A student walked into his Southern California high school yesterday, pulled a gun out of his backpack, and shot five classmates, killing two, police say. It was the suspect's 16th birthday. When the terror at Santa Clarita's Saugus High School was over, the shooter turned the gun on himself. He remains in critical condition. A 16-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy died at a hospital.
