FROM THIS EPISODE

According to Police in South Pasadena, two teenagers said they were willing to die in a shootout after killing as “many people as possible.” They’re under arrest, but no guns have been found. We’ll talk with the Mayor and ask a specialist about how to detect any warning signs.

Also tonight, Austin Beutner talks about his plans as the new publisher of the Los Angeles Times. Will he beef up local coverage? What about foreign news? And what happened to Beutner’s plans to buy the paper?

The Foiled School Shooting Plot in South Pasadena 11 MIN, 5 SEC
South Pasadena Police Chief Art Miller says two students had a “huge plan” for a mass shooting at South Pasadena High. After they were arrested, he says they told officers they were willing to die in a police shootout. No weapons were found, and there was no target date, but the evidence was “pretty frightening.” The FBI is part of the investigation.

A Conversation with Austin Beutner, New Publisher of the LA Times 14 MIN, 19 SEC

Former investment banker Austin Beutner was First Deputy Mayor of Los Angeles under Antonio Villaraigosa. He raised $600,000 to run for Mayor on his own, but dropped out before the campaign really began. Then, his plan to run the Los Angeles Times as a non-profit with fellow investors fell through, but now he’s signed on as publisher of the paper he wanted to buy.
