Four teens shoot teacher at California school during robbery

A teacher was in his classroom at Edison High School in Fresno, California, on Christmas Eve, when four teen boys, ages 16 and 17, entered the room with a handgun and sawed-off shotgun, intending to rob the computers in the room.  When the teacher, Steven Guerrero, fought back, the teens shot him in the stomach and leg.

The teens were apparently gang members.

The teacher survived the wounds.  The teens were captured and charged.

From an article:
Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer announced the arrests on Tuesday. According to the Fresno Bee, 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.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
