Gun Threat Prompts Lockdowns At Fallbrook And Ivy Continuation High Schools

A report of a possible gun-related threat against Fallbrook and Ivy Continuation high schools Monday morning prompted an hours-long lockdown of the two neighboring campuses.

The security alert went into effect about 10:30 a.m., according to school and sheriff's officials. Deputies were dispatched to check for any hazards at or around the campuses.

The lockdowns remained in effect through the mid-afternoon. Authorities gave an all-clear for students to be released from their classrooms shortly before 3 p.m., according to the San Diego County Office of Education.


Details on the possible threat were not immediately available, and it was unclear if law enforcement personnel located any weapons or suspects during their search.

KPBS has created a public safety coverage policy to guide decisions on what stories we prioritize, as well as whose narratives we need to include to tell complete stories that best serve our audiences. This policy was shaped through months of training with the Poynter Institute and feedback from the community. You can read the full policy here.
