Dr. Maya Angelou High School no longer on lockdown

 A report of a shooting in the South Los Angeles area  today left a nearby high school on lockdown for a time, but police found no evidence that anyone had been wounded.

Officers were sent to the area of 52nd Street and Towne Avenue about  8:25 a.m. on a report, which turned out to be unfounded, that a person had been  shot, said LAPD Officer Rosario Herrera.

During the investigation, officials ordered the lockdown of nearby Dr. Maya Angelou Community High School for about an hour.
