SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a threat phoned in Thursday to a Spring Valley elementary school.

A male, possibly underage, called Bancroft Elementary on Tyler Street about 2:45 p.m. to say there would be a shooting at the school, deputies said. The caller also said the school should go on lockdown.

School officials initiated the lockdown and alerted the Sheriff’s Department, which sent deputies to the scene. California Highway Patrol officers also responded to the school.

No other threats were made, and no other information substantiated the caller’s threat.

Bancroft Elementary released students without incident under the watch of law enforcement officers, Sheriff’s Sergeant Michael Hettinger reported.
