    Los Angeles school briefly “locked down” for manhunt

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – An elementary school was locked down on Friday for about two hours as police looked for a murder suspect in the area, but he was arrested without incident, police and school officials said. During the manhunt, Carpenter Elementary was closed to outside visitors and students were confined to classrooms, said a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Unified School District. Police were looking for murder suspect Luis Solano, 20, a man wanted for a shotgun killing in an alley from this past November. Officers saw Solano near the school and when he fled they set up a perimeter to look for him, police said. He was arrested in the neighborhood without incident, said Los Angeles police spokeswoman Officer Rosario Herrera. (Reporting by Alex Dobuzinskis and Steve Gorman: Editing by Greg McCune)
