Two people have been shot and wounded on a high school campus, officials said.

Los Angeles County Fire Department spokesman James Barnes said a 12-year-old girl and an 18-year-old man were both shot multiple times Friday night at Washington Preparatory High School in the Athens area.

Both were hospitalized in critical condition, Barnes said.

Susan Cox, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Unified School District, said the shooting occurred in a parking lot outside the gymnasium at the end of a football game. She said the male victim was a student at the school last year.

Cox said one suspect was seen running east from the campus. No arrests have been made.
