SANTA ANA (CBSLA) — A lockdown was lifted Tuesday at two schools in Orange County after reports of a person with a gun near the campuses.

Hewes Middle School, at 13232 Hewes Ave., and nearby Foothill High School, 19251 Dodge Ave., were put on lockdown just before 8 a.m., according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

Students crossing a street near Hewes Middle School had reported seeing someone in a car who appeared to have a weapon.

Both campuses were searched and deemed safe, and the lockdowns were lifted at about 9:45 a.m.

    faked news? Video of Orange City Police officers taken somewhere near Fullerton when the schools involved are in OC Sheriff’s Jurisdiction near Tustin. What the hell?

    1. Kevin – I think the sign you are referring to (which has the word Fullerton on it) is for Titan Tutors which is an advertisement on the fence at Hewes. It says at the bottom that tutoring services are provided at Hewes Middle School. In other words, just because a sign has the name of a city on it doesn’t mean that the sign is posted in that city. I live a few blocks away from Hewes and there was definitely a lockdown there yesterday.
