A student fired shots inside a high school Friday and held three students hostage for more than an hour before he was taken into custody, authorities said. No one was injured. The 17-year-old student initially took about 30 students hostage in a band room at Las Plumas High School. He quickly released most of them, but held three students for about an hour longer before he was arrested, Police Capt. Jerry Smith said. The gunman's only demand to deputies during the standoff was that they "back off," he said.
