Lockdown orders lifted at 5 San Diego school campuses

Posted: Updated:
SAN DIEGO (CNS/CBS 8) - A 14-year-old student was arrested Friday after a gun was found in his locker at Monte Vista High School on a chaotic day in which security precautions were put into effect at a total of five campuses in San Diego County, the Sheriff's Department reported.

The Monte Vista campus, on Sweetwater Springs Boulevard south of state Route 94 in Spring Valley, was placed in lockdown around 10:30 a.m. when students reported that another pupil was in possession of a gun, according to a sheriff's statement.

Deputies found a "western, old-style handgun" and apparent narcotics in a locker, and the boy was arrested, according to the sheriff's department.

The lockdown ended not quite two hours later, and students returned to class.

In San Diego, three schools went into lockdown Friday morning after district officials received an anonymous email containing a threat, while a fourth campus had students shelter in place, said Ursula Kroemer of the San Diego Unified School District.

Kroemer said the lockdowns were instituted at Lewis Middle School in Allied Gardens, Thurgood Marshall Middle School in Scripps Ranch and Magnolia Science Academy in San Carlos so police could search the campuses.

Students at Lincoln High School in Lincoln Park were asked to shelter in place, which is a step below lockdown status, she said.

The lockdowns were over by early Friday afternoon.

The San Diego Unified School District says that all students were safe and lockdown procedures were protocol in these cases.
