Cesar Chavez High School student shot on campus in Laveen | Arizona News

LAVEEN, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) — A student is in the hospital after being shot at Cesar Chavez High School in Laveen on Monday afternoon. Phoenix Police Sgt. Ann Justus said a fight broke out at a bathroom just before 3 p.m. as school was letting out and that’s when the shooting happened. The victim, a 16-year-old boy, has injuries that are not considered life-threatening, police said. The shooter is still on the loose and Justus couldn’t confirm if they were a student.

Justus said it was not an active shooter situation. “We believe this is an isolated incident,” she said. Justus added the school was never put on lockdown. The school has a safety officer but wasn’t on campus. “They’re not housed on campus so they weren’t here at the time,” said Justus. Police haven’t recovered a weapon yet.
