SAN DIEGO – The San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts was placed on lockdown Monday as police responded to reports of a man suspected to have a possible weapon on a nearby balcony.
A San Diego police watch commander told FOX 5 a caller indicated the man had an airsoft or pellet gun. Officers were not able to confirm that detail, but helicopter video from SkyFOX showed a heavy police presence near the school in the 2400 block of Dusk Drive in Bay Terraces.
The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that police had surrounded a home on Dusk and that two people came out with their hands up about 4:15 p.m. Shortly thereafter at another home on Alta View, one other person was seen being handcuffed by police.
The school’s lockdown later was lifted about 5:30 p.m. and students were dismissed, according to the San Diego Unified School District.
Other details on the incident were not immediately known.
No injuries have been reported, according to City News Service.
