A student was shot in the leg across from Hollywood High this morning at Highland and Sunset according to the LA Times. As to a suspect, because of contradictory accounts told by the teen himself, some authorities think he actually shot himself in the leg accidentally, but no weapon was found at the scene. "We haven't had anything like this in a long, long time," said Principal Fonna Bishop.
