911 Calls Ignored After OU Shooting

City officials and the LAPD are working with Jewish community leaders to determine why two 911 calls went unanswered when a pellet gunshot shattered the front window of a building where a Jewish youth group was meeting the night of March 27. Rabbi Alan Kalinsky, director of the West Coast region of the Orthodox Union (OU), at whose headquarters the incident occurred, said police have since been very solicitous and cooperative in trying to figure out how the system broke down. "They will do whatever they can to make certain that we not only feel safer, but are safer," Kalinsky said. No one was injured in the attack.
