Chaminade High School.
TOPANGA CANYON—On Tuesday, May 28, a report of a man with a shotgun was made at approximately 9:40 a.m. prompting a full lockdown of a private high school campus in West Hills.

The sighting was made by a parent in the 7500 block of Chaminade Avenue.

The Catholic school released the following statement on its website immediately following the alleged gun sighting: “Chaminade High School Campus is currently on lockdown. Faculty and Staff are following all safety procedures and all students and staff are reported to be safe. We will provide more information as soon as possible. Please do not call the school and stay away from the campus until further notice.”

In a news conference later that day, Vice Principal of Academics Gregory Klee informed the public that the school was locked down within five minutes.

The Los Angeles Police Department’s Topanga Division resolved the situation after learning that a student carrying a tripod was mistaken as a man with a shotgun.

According to the LAPD, the campus was searched room by room, and the lockdown was lifted before noon.
