Two teenage girls were shot to death by a young man Tuesday as they walked to school in a quiet Lynwood neighborhood, Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies said. The gunman, who was on foot, fired numerous times at the girls, identified as cousins Olivia Munguia, 17, and Jessica Yvette Zavala, 15. Investigators were looking into the possibility that the shooting was motivated by a dispute between the older girl and an ex-boyfriend, sources said.

A former Lynwood Unified School District official Monday was placed on three years' probation and ordered to perform 400 hours of community service for using on-duty school employees to work on his private property. Commodore F. Reid, 53, was also ordered by Superior Court Judge J. D. Smith to make restitution once it is determined how much money was lost. Deputy Dist. Atty. Herb Lapin said the amount is probably between $2,000 and $5,000. Reid, who was director of maintenance, operations and transportation for the district, pleaded no contest March 7 to one count each of grand theft and receiving stolen property.

Hundreds of parents have marched outside a board meeting and have packed public hearings to protest a plan to convert the three largest elementary schools to year-round schedules. Participation would have been voluntary.

A Superior Court judge Tuesday granted a preliminary injunction to shut down year-round schools in the Lynwood Unified School District, canceling the 3-week-old summer semester for 5,000 students.

They come from one of the Los Angeles area's poorest neighborhoods--and from schools with some of the state's lowest test scores.
