VALLEJO, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California high school staff member was shot Tuesday after breaking up a fight on campus, authorities said.

The Vallejo High School staff member was struck at least once and is expected to survive, police said.

The staff member had just broken up a fight among several students and “some unknown males” when the shooting occurred around 3:45 p.m. Some of the brawlers fled in a sedan, firing back toward the remaining group before they left, police said.

“This is a senseless act of violence committed by some individuals who do not value human life,” Vallejo Police Chief Shawny Williams said in a news release. “Enough is enough. It’s a sad day anyone is shot in front of our children at school where they should feel safe.”

The school was put on lockdown in the aftermath of the violence. There will be an increased police presence on campus Wednesday.

Vallejo is about 32 miles (50 kilometers) north of San Francisco.
