The Parks Reserve Forces Training Area, commonly known as Camp Parks, was on lockdown due to a possible intruder.

Multiple law enforcement agencies responded and conducted hour-long searches of the area.

There were no confirmed shots fired and no intruder was located, authorities said.

Deputies contained the scene and stated there was no immediate threat.

Multiple law enforcement agencies continued to search the area for any possible threat. The sheriff’s officer was using a drone in the search.

Around 11:00 a.m., Dublin schools in the area with summer school and daycare programs were told to shelter in place after reports of the situation, according to Dublin Unified School District officials.

Dublin’s community and schools were not on lockdown. Students in the schools were released to parents who arrive to pick them up, according to the school district.

The shelter-in-place order was lifted at about 3:30 p.m.

The sheriff’s office, which runs nearby Santa Rita Jail, also said that reports of an escape at the jail are false and that the jail has nothing to do with the situation at Camp Parks.
