People walk past the entrance to Gardena High School in Gardena, California January 18, 2011 after two students were shot, one in the head, when a gun went off accidentally in a classroom.

A 15-year-old girl who was shot in the head when a smuggled gun went off at a Los Angeles high school is making progress and another wounded student is out of the hospital.

The girl's skull was broken by a bullet that also hit a 15-year-old boy in the neck Tuesday at Gardena High School.

Dr. Gail Anderson at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center says the girl remains in critical condition Thursday but she's more awake and can move her arms and legs a little better.

Anderson says the bullet that went through the boy's neck missed major nerves, arteries and his spine. He was released from the hospital Wednesday night.
