REDDING, Calif. - Turtle Bay School was put on a temporary lockdown Friday after there were reports of a possible gunman nearby.

According to the Redding Police Department, someone reported seeing a man with what looked like a rifle on a trail at "Traveled Way" and North Market Street. 

At around 10 a.m. Turtle Bay School, which is about one mile away from the trail, went on a precautionary lockdown. 

Police searched the trail area with aerial assistance from the California Highway Patrol but they were not able to find anyone. 

A school resource officer said that the suspect could have possibly been a transient with a walking stick. 

The lockdown was lifted around 10:30 a.m. and all parents were alerted via call system by the Police Department that everything was all clear.

Hotter temperatures, elevated fire danger, and more widespread impacts to air quality are ahead for your Friday. We'll get even hotter on Saturday, and stay hot on Sunday. A drop in temperatures and the potential for thunderstorms will return to northern California early next week.
