SAN DIEGO (AP) — Authorities in San Diego say a teacher who brought a semiautomatic gun and knife to school was arrested before students arrived.

Authorities said Tuesday that Ned Walker was booked into county jail and held on $50,000 bond. The San Diego Unified School District says the 41-year-old teacher was arrested Monday at Farb Middle School, where he has worked since 2006.

School district spokesman Jack Brandais says Walker refused to tell authorities why he brought the .380-caliber gun and knife on campus.

Walker has worked at San Diego public schools since 2003. He is being placed on administrative leave pending outcome of the investigation.

FRESNO OFFICIALS SAY 2 DIE FROM CARBON MONOXIDE: FRESNO  (AP) — Fresno fire officials say two men are dead and woman is hospitalized in critical condition after they were found inside a warehouse with a generator that had increased carbon monoxide levels inside the building.

Fresno Fire Department spokesman Koby Johns told the Fresno Bee that firefighters were called to the warehouse just before 3 p.m. Tuesday when the owner of the building found the three unconscious inside the warehouse.

Johns says the three people were living in the warehouse with the owner's permission. The generator was being used for power after the power to the building was shut off two days ago.
