More than a dozen San Diego police patrol cars responded to a combination elementary and middle school Thursday afternoon after a report of shots fired from a nearby vehicle.
Officers stood on the campus of Audubon K-8 School at 8111 San Vicente Street just before 2 p.m.
There were students in the school at the time of the incident.
The school is located in Lomita, north of State Route 54 and east of State Route 125.
San Diego police said a pickup truck driver fired two shots into the air in front of a home across the street from the school according to witnesses at the scene.
The suspect then drove off headed north on Bonsall Street, officials told NBC 7.
The school was on lockdown until San Diego police officers were able to clear the rooms.
