    Encinitas schools were momentarily locked down Monday morning after the Sheriff's Department received a report of a suspect firing a weapon near the schools.

    San Diego sheriff's deputies responded to the call just after 11 a.m. from the 700 block of Herder Lane, according to a department spokesperson.

    When deputies arrived, the suspect, 44-year-old Steven Clay Robinson was inside a house and taken into custody.

    He faces two counts of attempted murder, and deputies found several weapons inside his home.

    Deputies said the schools nearby weren't in danger, but due to the proximity of the incident, they were locked down for about 30 minutes.
