Deputies are asking that parents DO NOT respond to Colfax schools. You will be blocking emergency responders and children are not being released at this time.
The Placer County Sheriff’s Office is at Colfax Elementary School where three first-grade students reported seeing a man wearing a black mask and carrying a long gun and a handgun. The students said the man was walking in the soccer field, toward Colfax Elementary School. A perimeter was immediately set up and both the elementary school and nearby Colfax High are on lockdown. Multiple agencies are assisting the Placer County Sheriff’s Office. Air support is also assisting. More information will be released as available.
