LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say a 17-year-old sophomore whose loaded gun went off at school when he dropped his backpack faces assault with a deadly weapon charges.

Los Angeles Police Capt. Bill Hayes says the teenager was arrested and booked in a juvenile detention center after the shooting Tuesday that injured two students.

Police interviewed the suspect and his mother for a couple of hours and both were cooperating. Hayes says the boy expressed remorse and his mother was concerned about the two victims.

Hayes says it's "plausible" that the shooting was an accident, but the boy was negligent to bring the gun to school. Two students were shot and one of them remains in critical condition.

The teenager was on probation for a fight at school last year.
