Man held after gunshots fired near Pico-Union school, LAPD says
The 19-year-old suspect was apprehended by an officer assigned to patrol campuses in the wake of last month's Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, the Los Angeles Police Department said.
The gunfire was reported about 2 p.m. in the 1600 block of Orchard Avenue, on the west end of Magnolia Avenue Elementary School. No injuries were reported.
Police told The Times that the shooting appeared to be connected to a rivalry among local street gangs. A revolver was recovered from the scene.
The alleged shooter was being held Tuesday evening by investigators. His name was not released.
No other details were immediately available.ALSO
