A jury Friday convicted a 24-year-old Inglewood man of voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of a popular Inglewood minister. But the Superior Court panel acquitted Aaron Deon Seymour of first- and second-degree murder charges in the shooting death of Pastor Charlie Williams, 70. Williams' wife, Lois Moore-Williams, expressed anguish at the verdict. Seymour faces a prison sentence ranging from six to 21 years. "I lost all I had," she said.

As students from neighboring secondary schools walked out of class recently to protest immigration legislation, one Inglewood elementary school imposed a lockdown so severe that some students were barred from using the restroom. Instead, they used buckets placed in classroom corners or behind teachers' desks. Appalled by the school's action, Worthington Elementary School parents have complained to the school board and plan to attend another board meeting next week.

The City Council of Inglewood, where voters two years ago shot down a Wal-Mart-funded ballot measure to allow one of the retailer's Supercenters, is expected to vote tonight on a proposal that could make it harder for Wal-Mart to resurrect the issue.

Members of the mostly South Asian mosque described the trio -- two African American Muslims and a Pakistani national -- as "friendly, devout" adherents and said that they had been unaware of any dangers the men might have posed.
