A man was taken into custody after pointing what appeared to be a rifle at a public school employee in West Hollywood Thursday morning, authorities said. The incident unfolded at the Larchmont Charter School campus on the 1200 block of N. Fairfax Avenue at around 8:30 a.m.
Surveillance footage shows the suspect step out of a blue Hyundai SUV and point the weapon, prompting the school to go on lockdown and notify parents through its emergency alert system. Anna Martin had just gotten back from dropping off her 9-year-old daughter at the school when she received a text from another parent that the school was on lockdown.
