CHICO, Calif. -

After a man was reportedly seen with a gun near Chico Country Day School this morning, the school went on lockdown.

According the Chico Police Department, a man who looked to be about 20 years old, wearing jeans and a red hooded sweatshirt underneath a coat, was spotted around 7:39 a.m. pointing a gun toward the sky near 12th and Park Ave. in Chico.

The party that called to report the incident said that the person in question appeared to be under the influence of drugs.

Officers surveyed the area but were unable to find the man.

After police checked the school’s campus and made contact with each classroom, the lockdown was lifted around 8:03 a.m.

The suspect has not yet been found.
