LA school shooting a hoax, officer arrested

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Times is reporting that allegations have been made that a Los Angeles School Police Department officer lied about being shot outside of a school last week.
An apology was issued by Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent Ramon Cortines as the shooting case caused thousands of students to be under lockdown for hours.
Officer Jeff Stenroos has been relieved of his duty and the firing process has begun, according to Cortines.
“Although Jeff Stenroos was an eight-year veteran of the Los Angeles School Police, his actions in no way reflect the professionalism and integrity of the men and women who protect and serve this District every day,” he added.
Police announced Jan. 27 that Stenross had made up the story of being shot. He has been booked on a felony charge of filing a false police report and was released on $20,000 bail early Jan. 28.
The incident caused an immense police response that blocked roads, locked down schools and refused to let people in or out of a 7-square-mile area.
