Riverside County sheriff’s deputies ordered the lockdown at Temescal Canyon High School on El Toro Road shortly after 10 a.m., following reports of “suspicious circumstances” connected to a person or persons, possibly armed, on the campus, Deputy Mike Vasquez told City News Service.
“The campus was secured, and we conducted a thorough search,” Vasquez said. “No threats were found.”
Students and faculty remained in classrooms for about 90 minutes while the investigation was completed, he said.
The lockdown was lifted just before noon.
