    Calif. school officer shot, saved by body armor

    Nine schools with about 9,000 students were locked down as more than 350 police officers searched for the gunman.

    LOS ANGELES A school police officer was shot by a suspected car burglar near a San Fernando Valley high school Wednesday but his bulletproof vest saved him, authorities said. Officers swept a wide area, locking down nine schools in a dragnet for the shooter.

    Schools were released from lockdown as their areas were deemed safe. All students had been allowed to go home by Wednesday evening.

    West Hills resident Uma Karuppiah, 39, waited for an hour at her younger son's school, Welby Way Elementary, then she lined up outside her older son's school, Hale Middle School.

    Karothik Karuppiah, 7, said he had to share his lunch with classmates who didn't bring their own because no one was allowed to go to the cafeteria.

    "We weren't allowed to go to the bathroom so the teacher put up a curtain in the closet and kids had to pee in a trash can," Karothik Karuppiah said.

    A large area was sealed off by police, meaning most parents who tried to come to pick up their children were held several blocks away.

    Nine schools all within close enough proximity of where the crime happened, so that all nine get locked down? How close could nine schools be?
    Oh that's a good idea, lets have all the parents wait several blocks away in a "safe" area? So I guess the nine schools where all closer than the several blocks away area where they kept the unarmed parents waiting. All the schools must be in one big cluster. Because if they were several blocks away from each other, they wouldn't have needed to lock down 9 schools in the first place. Leave it to California.

    But I'm sure all the areas had "Gun Free Zone" signs.
