The student gunman who reportedly shot three students at Gardena High a few hours ago and forced a school-wide lockdown, has surrendered to police, according to LA Now.

Though the gunman was believed to have fled the scene on foot, police found him holed up in a classroom where he spoke with police for quite some time before surrendering. TV footage showed students running out of the area to safety.
