LIVE OAK, Calif - Taking no chances, Luther Elementary School in Live Oak went on lockdown at 11:30 a.m. Friday after staff members heard gunshots.

This is video sent from a viewer showing Sutter County Sheriff's deputies responding to the lockdown.

Luckily there was no real threat to the school but teachers did not want to take any chances.

So students were told to stay inside the school for about an hour.

Deputies arrived two minutes after the 911 call, but they found no trace of a shooting.

The Superintendent of Live Oak Unified School District, Mathew Gulbrandsen, says they take these situations seriously and take precautions to ensure the children's safety.
