DEVELOPING: Suspect in Custody Following Reports of School Shooting in Palmdale, Calif.

WATCH: Sheriff's spokesman discusses school shooting in Palmdale Student Pauline Guijaro said she heard a volley of "around 10 gunshots".

The suspect called his father after the shooting, telling his dad he fired the gun in the air.

Officials said they received a call about a man with a gun on the high school's campus.

"So I called the school and his teacher was crying, but she said everything was fine and he was fine", Guzman said.

The suspect has been charged with one count of attempted murder, McDonnell said.

The incident is the 21st school shooting in the United States this year. He is a former student who recently transferred to another school, the sheriff added. The arresting officer is a family friend, McDonnell said. Police arrived three minutes later. Shortly after, a report came in of a possible threat at nearby Manzanita Elementary School, which turned out to be false.

There are several videos from the scene, including one from a surveillance camera that recorded the incident.

The motive for the shooting is unknown and it's unclear whether it is gang related, Schrader said. They suggest it could have kept the situation from getting worse. He said he heard one shot and turned.
