The shooting at a Los Angeles middle school that injured four students Thursday was an accident, police said after interviewing the 12-year-old suspect. The girl, who has not been identified, told investigators she brought the semi-automatic handgun to school in her backpack. It fired accidentally when she dropped the bag during class. The girl remains in custody at a juvenile facility and faces a charge of negligently discharging a firearm on school grounds.
