At about 10:30 a.m., a witness reported a suspicious person in the area of Templeton Middle School. Authorities placed the school on lockdown, and San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s deputies came out to the scene. 

Investigators located two high school students in the area with pellet guns, deputies said. Officials then lifted the lockdown.

The sheriff’s office has yet to release additional information about the incident.

Pellet guns oh my.

NOW, it’s pellet guns. Before that, it was “..two men with guns near the school.”

School and Police actions, were responding to initial reports.

It was never two men with guns near the school, the article states a suspicious person near the school.

What are we teaching our young people when a suspicious person is reason to lock them down?

I’d like to know what was actually reported.
