So. Calif. landfill searched for murder gun 

Los Angeles police are searching tons of trash at a Southern California landfill for the gun used to kill a high school soccer player.

Sgt. Haley Smith says some 30 people, including detectives and community volunteers, went to the Calabasas Landfill in Agoura Hills on Wednesday morning. Smith says they'll dig through 300 or 400 tons of trash for a gun they believe was dumped in the garbage after the Jan. 11 shooting of Francisco Rodriguez.

The 17-year-old was shot in his yard after a woman knocked on his door in the San Fernando Valley and lured him outside.

Nineteen-year-old Elizabeth Ibarra and 24-year-old Jason Schumann were arrested a few days later. Schumann is charged with murder.

Authorities say the three may have had a personal dispute.
