There are at least six — but possibly seven — victims, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department. It was not immediately clear if all of them had been shot.

The shooter is described as an Asian male wearing black clothing, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

Police activity could be seen in a field area off Decoro Driver near Santa Clarita Elementary School, according to the aerial footage.

Residents who live anywhere near Saugus High are being told to lock their doors, stay inside and call 911 if they see the suspect. Everyone else is being asked to avoid the area.
