A report of what sounded like a gunshot near an eastern San Diego County primary school prompted a brief lockdown of the campus Friday.
“Out of an abundance of caution, school staff immediately initiated a campuswide lockdown,” sheriff’s Capt. Michael Rand said. “Deputies searched (the school), as well as the adjacent Creekside Early Learning Center. They were unable to locate any evidence of a shooting.”
Authorities lifted the lockdown just before 11 a.m., Rand said.
