January 26, 2011 | 3:21 pm -- El Camino High Real High School and Hale Middle School in Woodland Hills were briefly placed on lockdown Wednesday after a man with a gun was reported in the El Camino faculty parking lot, Los Angeles police and school district officials said.
The incident was reported at 2:42 p.m. at the campus at Valley Circle and Burbank boulevards, said LAPD spokeswoman Norma Eisenman. The sighting was reported near the end of the school day and it was not immediately clear how many students were kept in their classrooms.
By 3:15 p.m., a student had been detained by police and officers were reopening the campuses, Officer Sara Faden said.
Wednesday's lockdown comes one week after a school police officer was shot outside El Camino. The officer survived and police launched a massive manhunt that shut down seven square miles of the west San Fernando Valley and kept nine schools in the area under lockdown for several hours.
