LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Police said a possible suspect has been apprehended after a person was shot and wounded on Tuesday just outside a high school in Santa Rosa, California.

All school lockdowns had been lifted and there was no evidence the weapon was on campus, authorities said on Twitter.

Santa Rosa police called the shooting an "isolated" incident just beyond the walls of Ridgway High School, and said there were no further reports of violence on the campus.

One person was wounded in the shooting and receiving medical treatment, police said.

The victim, identified as a 17-year-old juvenile, was in stable condition at a local hospital after suffering a gunshot wound to the abdomen, Captain John Cregan of Santa Rosa police told a news conference.

Santa Rosa, a city of nearly 180,000 people, is about 50 miles (80 km) north of San Francisco.

China's Xi says navy should become world class | Reuters

BEIJING Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday called for greater efforts to make the country's navy a world class one, strong in operations on, below and above the surface, as it steps up its ability to project power far from its shores.China's navy has taken an increasingly prominent role in recent months, with a rising star admiral taking command, its first aircraft carrier sailing around self-ruled Taiwan and a new aircraft carrier launched last month.With President Donald Trump promising a US shipbuilding spree and unnerving Beijing with his unpredictable approach on hot button issues including Taiwan and the South and East China Seas, China is pushing to narrow the gap with the U.S. Navy.Inspecting navy headquarters, Xi said the navy should "aim for the top ranks in the world", the Defence Ministry said in a statement about his visit."Building a strong and modern navy is an important mark of a top ranking global military," the ministry paraphrased Xi as saying.
