FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — Police are searching for four teenage boys they say shot and injured a teacher who fought back during an attempted robbery at a central California high school.

The Fresno Bee reports (http://bit.ly/18F2f3i) that Steven Guerrero was shot twice Thursday in a classroom at Edison High in Fresno. He teaches athletic training part time.

The newspaper reported Friday that the teacher was in fair condition. A hospital said Saturday that Guerrero was no longer listed as a patient.

Deputy Police Chief Pat Farmer says the armed teens entered an unlocked classroom and demanded a laptop computer.

The teacher allowed them to take it but fought back when one of the teens struck him with a 25-pound free weight.

Farmer says Guerrero knocked a handgun away, but a suspect got it first and shot him.
