4 arrested in shooting of California teacher

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Police have arrested four teenage boys in the shooting of a Central California high school teacher who fought back during an attempted robbery at the school.

Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer announced the arrests on Tuesday. According to the Fresno Bee ( http://bit.ly/1hF14Bi), he identified the suspects as 17 and 16-year-old Norteno gang members.

Police have said the teens were armed with a handgun and a sawed-off shotgun when they confronted Edison High School teacher Steven Guerrero in a classroom around 7 p.m. Thursday.

Guerrero allowed the group to take a computer but then fought back after one of the teens allegedly struck him with a free weight. He was shot in the stomach and leg, but survived.

Dyer said the shooter was a student at Edison and has confessed.
