A private San Fernando Valley high school was placed on lockdown Tuesday due to a report of a person with a gun near campus that turned out to be a student with a boom microphone.
“There was a report that a male, white, about 18 years old, was seen approaching the school in the parking lot area with some type of object in his hand, possibly a rifle or shotgun. He was dressed in black pants, black top,” LAPD Capt. Hearn said.
The school was on lockdown for almost three hours while more than 50 officers from several divisions conducted a room-to-room search of the campus.
