A report of two male juveniles possibly carrying a rifle while dressed in body armor and camouflage prompted authorities to place officers at each Beaumont school campus Thursday morning; police stressed that no schools were placed on lockdown and that there was never a credible threat to students’ safety.

The suspicious activity was reported to the Banning Police Department near Highland Springs Avenue and Oak Valley Parkway, which is on the Banning-Beaumont border, according to a statement by the Beaumont Police Department.

Banning police alerted the Beaumont Police Department, which sent officers to each Beaumont Unified School District campus as a precaution. The San Bernardino County sheriff’s airship was also called in, the release said.
