Four Los Angeles area schools went into lockdown yesterday, the one thought to have the most potential danger in Pasadena at Blair International Baccalaureate Magnet School. An early morning report by a student saying someone had a gun prompted a lockdown that lasted throughout the day. Later in the day, police detained one male juvenile for questioning, but no further details have been released.

The Pasadena Star News reported students inside the school "got on the Internet and looked at the news Web sites to see what was going on." Outside, parents and media gathered, but the some allege that police separated the two parties when a mother told a TV reporter that her "sense of security was shattered."
