Manteca Bulletin - - Local/state -

SAN FRAN­CISCO (AP) — Po­lice said they ar­rested four San Fran­cisco stu­dents Thurs­day in con­nec­tion with a gun­shot on a high school cam­pus that in­jured no one but prompted a lock­down and can­celed classes.

A gun and spent bul­let cas­ing was re­cov­ered on grounds of Bal­boa High School, San Fran­cisco po­lice spokes­woman Grace Gat­a­pan­dan said.

She said one of the stu­dents is re­spon­si­ble for the gun and it dis­charged. The other three were ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of be­ing ac­ces­sories af­ter the fact.

Po­lice don’t re­lease the names of sus­pects younger than 18.

One stu­dent suf­fered a mi­nor in­jury un­re­lated to the gun­shot and was treated and re­leased to their par­ents.

Of­fi­cers were called to the school in the blue-col­lar Ex­cel­sior neigh­bor­hood on the city’s south side around 11:15 a.m., and of­fi­cers sur­rounded the cam­pus with guns drawn.

The school was locked down and three others in the area went on lock­down as a pre­cau­tion.

A news sta­tion’s he­li­copter later cap­tured video footage of po­lice es­cort­ing a young male in hand­cuffs from the school to a pa­trol car.
