San Diego police investigated a report of kids walking near an Ocean Beach middle school carrying a rifle.
The principal at Correia Middle School called police at 2:30 p.m. Monday describing a group of kids walking near the school carrying a rifle, officers said.
The school is located at 4302 Valeta Street near Famosa Boulevard.
Officers confirmed the school was locked down while they searched the area for three teenagers described as "high-school aged."
The rifle may have been an air-soft rifle because it appeared to have an orange tip, police said.
