Everybody by now must know what happened at Fairfax High. It's been in the news for 10 days. How a 15-year-old kid, fearful of gangs, carried a pistol to school. How he fiddled with the weapon in English class. How, as will happen with guns, it went off. How the slug tore through one student and buried itself in Demetrius Rice. How, as will happen with gunshot victims, the 16-year-old died where he fell.

Three officers called in to arrest an armed woman were slightly wounded Tuesday when one of their own guns accidentally went off, police said. The officers went to an apartment in the 4200 block of Whitsett Avenue after receiving reports of a woman brandishing a gun and creating a disturbance, Los Angeles Police Lt. Anthony Alba said. After entering the residence, officers arrested Debra Nichols, 37, who had allegedly assaulted her roommate, though police released no other details.
