An El Cajon elementary school was briefly placed on lockdown Wednesday evening after police received a report of a man with a gun.
Police determined the man seen walking near Madison Elementary School in camouflage was carrying a pellet gun, according to officials with the El Cajon Police Department.
The third-hand report came into the police department after school had been let out, and there were no students in the school at the time police responded.
Officers interviewed the man seen near the school on Madison Avenue.
There were no injuries reported.
