The lockdown has been lifted on Arcadia High School that started after an anonymous phone call came in saying a man with a gun was in or near the school.

“Lockdown over, search was negative, students being released by room to be taken by bus to County Park, east side,” said the Arcadia Police Department via Nixle.

“Student release will be slow, by room, with APD escort by bus to east side County Park, Santa Anita and Diamond.”

The department said earlier that the circumstances were similar to others in the area this week, none of which led to finding an actual gunman. On Monday, Santa Fe Middle School was locked down after a man called in and threatened to start shooting.

On Tuesday, Duarte High School and Northview Intermediate School were locked down after an anonymous tip about a man armed with a gun.
