VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Parents were terrified Friday morning after seeing a video posted on social media with armed deputies rushing towards a local school campus.
A threat Friday morning prompted several schools in Victorville city to go on lockdown, according to officials.
At 8:18 a.m. numerous deputies responded to West Creek Elementary School regarding students reporting two male subjects at the fence possibly trying to speak with students on campus, Sheriff’s spokeswoman Cindy Bachman told Victor Valley News.
Many parents stated they tried contacting West Creek Elementary after seeing the cell phone video posted to Victor Valley News Group, however, had no luck reaching faculty. The 17-second video was posted by a parent who was dropping off their child. The short clip depicts several sheriff’s deputies with their guns drawn walking onto the campus as the sheriff’s helicopter hovered above.
“Deputies responded and have cleared the West Creek campus and surrounding area. Deputies are just about done checking Gus Franklin Elementary and no sign of the two subjects on campus or nearby,” Bachman said.
School officials with the Victor Elementary School District have confirmed that none of their schools were affected by the alleged threat.
