LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles city prosecutors have charged two men with unlawful firearms storage following investigations into separate gun violence threats allegedly made last month by their teenage sons at two high schools.
City Attorney Mike Feuer announced the filings Monday, saying that locking up firearms not only saves lives, it's the law.
In one case, school police officers allegedly found two revolvers, a semi-automatic handgun and 90 rounds of ammunition unsecured in a bag behind a dresser. In the other case, officers allegedly found a loaded semi-automatic handgun unsecured in a bag in a closet.
Feuer says that in both cases children and parents reported the alleged threats to school police.
