Hellman Avenue, at about 1:25 p.m. when the dog stopped at a student’s backpack in a classroom. When they searched the backpack they found a handgun inside.” The school was then put under lockdown, and, according to the LA Times, a second handgun was found in the student’s backpack. Does anyone know anything else?
