Allesandro Elementary School: Lockdown For The Second Time In A Month

Photo: Diane Edwardson, September 9, 2014.  The local media helicopters were lined up and waiting for quite some time before the LAPD helicopter arrived to buzz close enough to rattle the walls of the houses on Corralitas Drive.

For the second time since school started, Allesandro Elementary School was locked down while LAPD searched for supposedly 2 men with shotguns on campus.  There have been a number of similar calls that have turned out to be hoaxes, but who wants to be the one that wasn't a hoax? 

When there's breaking neighborhood news -  the first place I check is The Eastsider.  If I'm in the neighborhood, I'm usually trying to figure out if it's something we're going to need to evacuate over (like the tanker fire that no other media outlet except the Eastsider had coverage as it was happening)  And The Eastsider identifies the neighborhoods correctly.
