San Clemente

It was 9:15 on the night of May 27, and Cara Vanni was chatting with a friend on the phone, just like any number of San Clemente teen-agers. Suddenly the line went dead. A minute later, strangers appeared in her bedroom doorway. "My parents brought these three people into my room," Cara, 16, recalled. "At first I thought they were old friends of the family who were about to say they knew me when I was 4. They weren't."

Two Southern California high schools were placed on lockdown Thursday as police investigated a bomb threat and a call of a student being held hostage at gunpoint. The two unrelated reports were deemed hoaxes by authorities. Beverly Hills police received a call about 2:45 p.m. from a person claiming to be a 16-year-old being held hostage by a man with a gun at Beverly Hills High School, said Lt. Lincoln Hoshino. Though many students had already gone home, those who remained were placed on lockdown while officers conducted a full search of the campus.
