Two San Pedro schools got a brief scare Friday when they were placed on lockdown after campus police received a report of a suspicious person who might be armed with a gun, officials said.

A search of Dana Middle School and San Pedro High School found no such person, said Monica Carazo, a Los Angeles Unified School District spokeswoman.

The lockdowns began about 3:20 p.m. and were lifted within 40 minutes, she said.

“We had gotten the report right around dismissal time, so things got a little crazy,” Carazo said. 

No one was hurt, she added.
