Ramona High School Placed on Lockdown

Ramona High School was briefly placed on lockdown Wednesday morning following reports of a suspicious person near the campus.

Just after 10:30 a.m., the Ramona City Unified School District's office confirmed the school had been placed on lockdown.

Officials with the San Diego County Sheriff's Department (SDSO) said a "person of dubious character" was reportedly spotted in the vicinity of the school. That person has now been found, the SDSO said.

Officials said the lockdown would soon be lifted. The brief order was issued for the high school only, officials said, not the middle school next door.

The school is located at 1401 Hanson Ln.

No other information was immediately available.
