At least two students were shot at a Los Angeles middle school Thursday when a female student opened fire in a classroom, police said.

A 30-year-old woman also suffered unspecified minor injuries but was not shot.

Shots were fired just before 9 a.m. inside a classroom at Salvador Castro Middle School, which is on the same California campus as Belmont High School, LAPD Sgt. Edward Bernal told reporters. The school campus is in the Westlake District of Los Angeles. 

Two 15-year-old students -- a male and a female -- suffered gunshot wounds. The teenage boy was said to be in critical condition. Another girl was taken to the hospital in fair condition, Los Angeles Fire Department said. 

The female student who opened fire was taken into custody. She was not immediately identified by name or age.

Police said the situation was under control, but the school was on lockdown as a search was being conducted.
