OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a lockdown prompted by threatening calls at an elementary school in Oakland has ended.
Oakland Unified School District spokesman Troy Flint says a lockdown was lifted shortly after 9:30 a.m. Friday, nearly an hour after a woman made several calls to Hoover Elementary School saying students would be harmed in a shooting.
Flint says there were no reports of any gunfire or injuries at the 300-student school. School district police officers had canvassed inside the school and the Oakland police had established a perimeter around it.
Flint says access to the school will remain restricted and a police presence will be on site throughout the day as a precautionary measure.
