Security was beefed up at Samuel Gompers Middle School in South Los Angeles on Thursday after two boys pulled out a knife and gun during an argument in a 7th-grade class.

The boys began arguing Wednesday afternoon when one of them pulled out a knife, prompting the other to grab a backpack and take out a gun, said Patrick Sinclair, spokesman for the nonprofit Partnership for Los Angeles Schools, which operates Gompers.
