MILES O'BRIEN, CNN ANCHOR: We begin on the West Coast. Whittier, California, just outside Los Angeles: live pictures courtesy of our affiliate KABC above the Whittier High School, which is under a lockdown -- which means nobody is getting in; nobody is getting out -- while police look for a suspect who apparently was brandishing a weapon -- there you see the officers going through the campus-like grounds of Whittier High School -- an adult who was armed with a weapon and who apparently had threatened a student earlier in the day.
This led to the lockdown that we're telling you about right now. Meanwhile, the hunt for that suspect continues. We don't know much more about what caused this incident, motives. But we do know this. We are told by authorities there that all the students at Whittier High School are safe and sound and accounted for.
