Lockdown lifted at Lindo Park Elementary School in Lakeside

Action due to report of armed man in area

SAN DIEGO - A report of man possibly armed with a gun near an Lindo Park Elementary School in Lakeside prompted a 45-minute lockdown Thursday as deputies searched the area without success.

A staffer at the school on 12824 Lakeshore Drive reported the sighting shortly before 2:30 p.m., sheriff's Lt. Anthony Ray said.

Teachers kept all students in their classrooms while patrol deputies fanned out through the area, contacting pedestrians and looking for suspicious people, according to Ray. No arrests were made, the lieutenant said.

Deputies gave an all-clear about 3:15 p.m., and the school lockdown was lifted.
