A Vallejo elementary school was briefly locked down Wednesday after a caller threatened to bring a gun onto campus, police said.
The man, who did not identify himself, called the Pennycook Elementary School at 9:02 a.m. on Fernwood Drive in East Vallejo and said he was “not feeling well. He was a former student and he was going to come to school with a weapon,” Sgt. Herman Robinson said.
After receiving the call, school officials summoned police and put the facility on lockdown, which involves securing doors and windows, turning off lights and making sure students and staff are safe, officials said.
