The police captain who ordered a lock-down at Belmont High School said Tuesday he had responded to witness reports that the suspects in the shooting of a campus police officer had tried to hide among the students. Capt. Michel Moore said the lock-down of nearly 3,000 students Monday became a daylong ordeal after police telephoned all 150 classrooms and 35 did not answer. Officers had to check each of those rooms, he said, and "that takes time." The gunmen escaped and remained at large Tuesday.

The early morning shooting of a school police officer outside Belmont High School on Monday led to a nearly daylong lock-down of the huge campus near downtown Los Angeles--a precaution that forced students to scrounge for food, while away the hours listening to rock music and relieve themselves in plastic sacks provided by their teachers.

A stray bullet killed a 71-year-old woman Sunday night shortly after gunfire, possibly from the same passing car, killed a 39-year-old man, both in Los Angeles. Ruben Argumedo was killed as he stood at the southeast corner of North Avenue 64 and Garvanza Avenue in Highland Park, police said. It was the same intersection where his 26-year-old brother Alexander was gunned down in November 1990. It wasn't immediately known what became of that investigation.
