The mother of a 14-year-old suspected gang member was arrested Thursday after she drove by George Washington Carver Junior High School and shot at members of a rival gang who she believed had bullied her son, police said. No one was hurt in the 7:50 a.m. incident on a school field at 46th Street and McKinley Avenue. But police said they believe she is the first Los Angeles mother to commit a drive-by shooting in an attempt to avenge her child.

Manzanares' home is the shell of a once-popular movie theater destroyed in a 1972 earthquake that laid waste to downtown Managua.
