Heritage High Lockdown Lifted After False Gun Warning

Story updated at 3:15 p.m.:

Heritage High School was on lockdown for about an hour this morning but the lockdown was lifted about 11:45 a.m. today, according to Jonathan Greenberg, superintendent of the Perris Union High School District.

Greenberg said a parent called the school saying she believed her son had taken a gun to school. The Sheriff's Department placed the school on lockdown as a safety precaution.

No gun was found in the student's possession and the parent called back to say all guns at the home were accounted for, according to Greenberg. A police news release said a student was questioned and released after it was determined there were no criminal violations.

"We have a gun protocol and it was followed, " Grrenberg said. "The Sheriff's Department placed the lockdown and they lifted it when the school was declared safe."


  1. I feel the need for precaution. But either his parents didn't trust him or he was acting get really shady. I don't see how you can miscount firearms. You would think she would if been 100% sure that her son had a weapon. But instead she spoked to son and I bet she ruined her child's high school experience.
