A gun scare that prompted the evacuation of an elementary school campus in Woodside on Saturday turned out to be teens carrying pellet guns, San Mateo County sheriff’s officials said. Deputies responded at about 2:30 p.m. Saturday to Woodside Elementary School at 3195 Woodside Road, where two people were reported to be dressed in camouflage and armed with rifles and a machete.
About 100 students and parents were on the campus at the time and were evacuated safely, sheriff’s officials said. Deputies quickly found the teens and detained and questioned them, then turned them over to family members, sheriff’s officials said.
