Man takes teacher hostage, barricades self inside classroom at elementary school – Los Angeles Times

A parent has taken a teacher hostage and is barricaded inside Castle View Elementary School in Riverside, school district officials said Tuesday.

The district was notified about the situation just after 11:20 a.m., Riverside Unified spokesman Justin Grayson said.

The door to a room is blocked with the male parent and a female teacher inside, said Riverside Police Officer Ryan Railsback. It was not immediately clear which room the man and hostage were in.

The incident began when the parent arrived before 11:15 a.m. and got into a confrontation with a teacher, Railsback said. The parent did not appear to follow the school district’s safety procedures and check in with the front desk, he added.
