    Eleven people were discovered on the campus of a San Diego-area school overnight, three of them inside the school

    The alarm went off after 2 a.m. Thursday at Herbert Ibarra Elementary School on Orange Avenue in City Heights.

    San Diego Unified School District police officers handcuffed 11 people including two adults and nine minors.

    Three of those detained were found in a heat and air room. Officials say five were caught running from the school and three were found hiding on campus.

    A custodian told NBC 7 an alarm would be triggered by someone trying to get into the school through a door or a window.

    Officials aren’t classifying the incident as an attempted burglary. They said those detained were cited for trespassing or violating curfew.

    The minors were to be driven home. The adults were released from custody at the school.
