TAFT, Calif. - A 16-year-old was in critical condition Thursday night after a fellow student interrupted a first-period class at Taft Union High School southwest of Bakersfield, confronted him by name and fired a round from a 12-gauge shotgun into his upper body. The assailant, also 16, tried to shoot a second student and missed before a science teacher was able to talk him down, apparently taking the shotgun as the other students fled from the classroom through a door. Police officers arrived after the teacher had disarmed the assailant and took the teenager into custody.

For many of the students on the chartered bus that collided with a FedEx freight truck Thursday, the rare all-expenses-paid trip was the first time anyone in their family had been courted by a college. The students were part of a 20-year-old program called Preview Plus that seeks to enroll low-income students and those who are the first in their families to attend college. Many of them are Latino and African American, although the state ban on affirmative action forbids public universities from using race or ethnicity to specifically target students for enrollment.

Newport Beach police are searching for a 28-year-old tutor suspected of helping a group of Orange County high school students hack into a campus computer system to change grades and access tests. The private tutor, 28-year-old Timothy Lance Lai of Irvine, is wanted for questioning on suspicion of helping the students at Corona del Mar High School hack into the computer system, but his whereabouts are unknown, police said in a notice issued Thursday.
