Officials temporarily put San Gabriel High School on lockdown this morning, after a student reported a situation that she thought involved a weapon.

Administrators responded immediately to this report, said Toby Gilbert, a spokesperson for the Alhambra Unified School District. The Alhambra Police Department was called and Assistant Superintendent Laurel Bear put San Gabriel High School on lockdown at 10:22 a.m. Students in the vicinity were interviewed and video footage was reviewed.

After looking at video footage several times with administrators, the student who reported her concerns said that she may have been mistaken. San Gabriel High School was given the all-clear just after 11 a.m.

“It was something that was very good to report, but it was never a threat,” said Gilbert. Students and staff are currently being debriefed.
