The 16-year-old who opened fire Thursday on his classmates at Saugus High School before shooting himself has died, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said Friday.

Officials identified the teen as Nathaniel Tennosuke Berhow, a student at the Santa Clarita, California, school, The Associated Press reported.

Berhow died at the hospital at 3:30 p.m. Friday. His mother was reportedly with him at the time.

School security footage showed Berhow arriving on campus Thursday morning, removing a .45-caliber handgun from his backpack and shooting at five students in the quad. Berhow then shot himself in the head. The attack lasted 16 seconds.

Gracie Muehlberger, 15, and Dominic Blackwell, 14, were killed during the shooting. Three others were injured and are expected to survive.

Berhow carried out the shooting on his birthday. Investigators say there is no clear motive for the shooting. They have not found a manifesto, diary or suicide note. 

Investigators say they think Berhow planned the school shooting but shot students at random.

“It wasn’t a spur-of-the-moment act,” Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said at a news conference Friday.

Villanueva said that Berhow appeared to have experience with the firearm he used in the attack. The student was able to continue shooting students even after the gun initially malfunctioned.

Officials do not know how Berhow obtained the gun or where it originated. Berhow’s deceased father had owned six guns, though none of those firearms were used in the shooting, according to Villanueva. Investigators also uncovered several unregistered firearms at Berhow’s residence.

The gun found at the school is being analyzed in a crime lab.

The school district has faced shooting threats before. In September, six students in the William S. Hart Union School District, which includes Saugus High, were arrested for making violent school threats on social media.

Fox Business Host Calls Trump 'Big Dumb Baby' For Attacking Yovanovitch

Fox Business Host Calls Trump 'Big Dumb Baby' For Attacking Yovanovitch

Fox Business Network host Lisa Kennedy condemned President Donald Trump’s Twitter attack on former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, who testified in the House impeachment inquiry Friday.

“Should the president be tweeting at her mid-hearing? No,” Kennedy said during an appearance on “The Five” shortly after the hearing ended. “It makes him look like a big dumb baby.” 

As Yovanovitch appeared before the Intelligence Committee, Trump castigated her diplomatic service on social media, claiming that “everywhere” she “went turned bad.”

Instead of bolstering his case, Kennedy said Trump’s real-time reproach “makes her look like a victim,” adding, “if he had just let it go, the last two days of hearings and testimony would have been a snooze fest.”

Yovanovitch, who was recalled from her post in early May, told lawmakers her ouster followed a “smear campaign” waged by Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, and other of the president’s allies.

Responding to Trump’s tweet during the hearing, Yovanovitch called it “very intimidating,” noting that “where I’ve served over the years, I and others demonstrably made things better.”

Trump later defended his remarks, describing impeachment as a political process, not a legal one, and asserting, “I’m allowed to speak up.”

On July 25, nearly three months after her dismissal, Trump’s now-infamous call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky took place. A rough transcript of the exchange shows that Trump pressed Zelensky repeatedly to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, based on unfounded allegations.

Yovanovitch said she was “shocked and devastated” upon learning of that conversation, and that “the color drained from my face.”

The call is a central focus of impeachment proceedings as U.S. military aid to Ukraine was being withheld at the time of the discussion, raising questions over whether there was a quid pro quo.

Kennedy’s rebuke of Trump’s behavior is an uncommon sign of differing viewpoints in the Fox media empire, where coverage of his presidency has been largely favorable, especially among opinion hosts who have sought to defend his administration against impeachment.

But in another break with the outlet’s primary point of view, Fox News anchor Chris Wallace stated Friday that if people “were not moved by” Yovanovitch’s testimony, they “don’t have a pulse.
