Woman Fatally Shot In Whittier Home, Suspect Believed To Be Inside

WHITTIER (AP) — A Whittier elementary school has been locked down as police surround a nearby home where a woman was shot to death.

Lt. Carlos Solorza says a report that a woman had been shot to death sent officers to a home near Murphy Ranch Elementary School at around noon Friday.

Solorza says police believe the killer is still inside the home but they don’t know the man’s condition. A SWAT team has been sent to the home east of Los Angeles and youngsters are being held inside the school until they can be safely released.

However, Solorza says the children are not in any immediate danger.
