A .380-caliber handgun was found on the fifth floor, along with three shell casings, authorities said. The school was swiftly locked down and stu dents kept in their classrooms as police in riot gear swept the building on Amsterdam Avenue between 65th and 66th streets. “They wanted us to be in the room, locked up until they had things under control,” said senior Giorlys Alvarez, 17, who was locked in a classroom for more than an hour. The school's metal detectors and X-ray machines were working Tuesday, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said. Teacher Octavia Melian said the school had previous problems with students breaching security. She said students would pass through the metal detectors, then open side doors for their friends to smuggle guns and other items inside. “It’s been a constant concern with the facul ty and the student body,” she said. The shooting was the first inside a New York City public school since September 1994. according to the teachers’ union. The school district is the nation’s largest, with more than a million pupils and 80,(XX) teachers. NEWS IN BRIEF Prosecutors request coroner’s inquiry into 1999 Columbine death GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) — Prosecutors have requested a coroner's inquest into the death of a Columbine High School student whose parents claim was accidentally killed by an officer during the 1999 massacre. Daniel Rohrbough's parents say he was shot by a Denver SWAT team member who rushed to the school after teen gunmen Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold began their April 20, 1999, assault. The sheriff's report on the shooting says Rohrbough was shot by Klebold. Coroner Carl Blesch said he hoped to decide on the inquest request by Thursday. Barry Arrington, the parents' lawyer, said Monday he would ask the coroner to delay an inquest until other investigative methods have been exhausted. He said he favors the creation of a legisla tive commission that could issue subpoenas and take testimony in private, allowing wit nesses to be more candid. Jefferson County District Attorney Dave Thomas had earlier declined to call a grand jury. He said the coroner would have sub poena power, though not as extensive as a grand jury.
