SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A report of an unkempt-looking man waving what appeared to be a pistol in a Lincoln Park-area neighborhood Tuesday prompted a 45-minute lockdown at a nearby elementary school while officers searched in vain for him.
A maintenance worker at Knox Elementary School in the 1000 block of South 49th Street reported seeing the suspicious man near the campus shortly after 10:30 a.m., according to San Diego police.

Police gave an all-clear about 11:30 a.m., at which point the campus lockdown was lifted, said Linda Zintz, a spokeswoman for San Diego Unified School District.
