Oceanside elementary school lockdown lifted

Posted: Updated:

OCEANSIDE (CNS) - An Oceanside elementary school student who reported seeing a possibly armed man near the school prompted a campus lockdown Tuesday, until police determined there was no such threat.

The child told a staffer at Laurel Elementary about seeing the man, possibly with a gun, just off school grounds shortly after noon, according to police.

Teachers kept all pupils in their locked classrooms while police searched the campus and surrounding areas, finding no armed person or any other threat, Lt. Leonard Mata said.

Police gave an all-clear about 1:20 p.m., dispatcher said.
