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.
Patrol officers searched the area with help from an SDPD helicopter crew but found no one matching the description of the suspect, who was described as a dirty-looking man in jeans and a sweat shirt.
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.
