The unnamed custodian was shot in his upper torso around 6:30 a.m. as he was performing his morning tasks of opening classrooms and multipurpose rooms in the school, the story stated.
According to the story, the custodian was taken to a local hospital and released five hours after being treated for his non-life threatening wound.
Police are investigating whether the shooting, which turned the school into a crime scene for nearly the entire day, was part of a robbery attempt or whether it was gang-related, the story noted.
Because custodians and cafeteria workers, who generally begin their shifts around 6 a.m., are concerned with their personal safety, Alisal Union School District will provide early-morning workers with advanced radios so they can communicate with other district employees, the story added.Esperanza Zendejas,
