MARANA, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - The campus of Twin Peaks K-8 school was placed on lockdown Monday morning, Oct. 3.

According to school administrators, police determined there was no threat to the campus at 7995 W. Twin Peaks Road and the lockdown was lifted after officers swept the campus as a precaution.

The lockdown was initiated after bus monitors observed a suspicious vehicle abandoned in the bus loop. The owner could not be found and suspicious items were visible in the car, so the school contacted the Marana Police Department.

Police located the driver in the area of 9100 N. Silverbell Road.

According to police, the woman left her car after it ran out of gas, and the suspicious items turned out to be an Airsoft rifle and some shotgun shells.

No charges will be filed.

The school resumed its normal schedule after the campus sweep was completed.
