The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department responded to 6000 Gladiola St. at 11:25 a.m., and the Eastvale school, located nearby, was placed on lockdown as deputies searched the area.

Deputy Mike Vasquez, a spokesman for the Sheriff’s Department, said officials were still searching the area and speaking with witnesses.
