Three Anaheim schools on lock down
Student with gun
ANAHEIM, Calif.—Two Anaheim schools were locked down today as police searched for a 14-year-old boy suspected of bringing a gun onto the campus of Loara High School, police said.
Police were called about 10 a.m., after a student reported that he thought he saw another student with a gun concealed in his waistband, Anaheim police Sgt. Rick Martinez said.
Police locked down the high school at 1765 W. Cerritos Ave., as well as nearby Madison Elementary, 1510 S. Nutwood St., as investigators went classroom-to-classroom on the Loara campus looking for the boy, Martinez said.
Police were about halfway through checking all the classrooms just before noon, Martinez said.
Police know the student's identity and suspect he is with another boy who does not attend Loara, Martinez said.

"More information will be forthcoming in the next week or so.''
Because of the ongoing negotiations, Tait said he couldn't offer many details.

Dozens of students in the California State University (CSU) system recently rallied in protest outside university headquarters in Long Beach where a board meeting was being held to discuss fee increases.
Students were outraged, and took the meeting as an opportunity to speak out and urge officials to find an alternative means to increase revenue at the schools.
The Los Angeles Unified School District board voted Tuesday 5-2 to adopt the School Climate Bill of Rights, which consists of a resolution that bans “willful defiance” suspensions and directs LAUSD to enact common-sense approaches to school discipline and expand programs that support all students in becoming healthy, thriving adults.
