Aerial video showed at least one person was airlifted to the Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital for treatment.

The shooter was still at large as of 11:30 a.m., Sanchez said.

Investigators had set up a perimeter and were searching for a male in a white vehicle, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Nichols.
