Report of UCSB Preschool Lockdown
updated: May 20, 2014, 10:03 AM

By Edhat Subscriber

The UCSB Preschool is on lockdown. My coworker's child is there and they will not tell her any information. Does anyone know what's going on?

How do they know it's on lockdown? Were all the parents called? I haven't seen any alerts.

according to an IVE teacher, loudspeaker: "we're going on lockdown".

not much information given to them except the alert that went out via UCSB's system regarding a suspicious person. Just being extra cautious.

just got ucsb 411 that there was a suspicious male running from pd near stables (close proximity to preschool)

Why is the subject considered dangerous? There's a lot of public concern for the safety of loved ones, so clues would be helpful.

I just got back from grub I hear something on the scanner about the coppers looking for someone and using the chopper don't know what the guy did but if I hear more so will you..

 

 COMMENT 520488P agree helpful negative off topic

Was he in custody and then ran off? Or was he just near the UCPD area? The alert doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

The west campus children's center is right next to the west campus stables. I wouldn't be surprised if the daycare is on lockdown if there's an emergency alert about a suspicious person in that area.

I live in UCSB housing next to the stables, and there's a helicopter flying around overhead. Just a few minutes ago I heard unintelligible voices coming over a loudspeaker as well.

Someone said something about someone with a description of the subject leaving the area...Now they are doing a search and "No, I don't know what he did."

They said something about finding a shoe, now the chopper is flying around looking for who lost it..

Searching thru heavy brush heading toward faculty housing I think that is where the scent is leading them so if you live there go in the house and lock up..

I can see the children's center from my window. Police are standing around facing the stable with backs to the children's center. The helicopter is circling slowly over the stables area. My guess is that a scared teenager is hiding in the bushes. The preschoolers are safely inside.

Keep posting #503! It's hard to get good information in an event like this. Your from-the-window account is helpful.

Wish Edhat would update the lead-in lines to reflect that the lockdown was lifted and at what time. No point worrying folks who are visiting this Website later in the day.

541....while we get your hunger for details, and we think the reason is the concern for a child of your own, you need to not shoot the messenger. Can you find another source of news anywhere at this hour? KEYT doesn't have it, and frankly will probably have a short blurb on it, due to their own skewed idea of reporting, and they don't have the amount of current and personal accounting that Roger gives us here. This kind of site is a valuable resource for everyone in the community needing this sort of information. Please think about that the next time you want to know something between the hours of broadcasting news, and are willing to take the chances of it actually being covered, versus the immediacy of this group. That being said I hope you and yours are safe.
