LEBANON, Ore. - As officers search for someone with a gun, all schools in the City of Lebanon have gone into "lockout" or "lockdown" mode, according to conflicting reports from the local school district and police.

"All Lebanon Schools are in lockdown at this time," Lebanon Police said in a 10:31 a.m. statement. "We will update you as soon as we know more details. At this time there has been no shooting reported. Please be patient as we will keep you updated."

Police would not comment on where the armed person they are looking for is believed to be located.

Officers emphasized that this is not a drill.

A minute before the police statement that all schools were in lockdown, Lebanon Community Schools had issued a statement that the high school was in lockdown and that other schools were in lockout.

Those lockdowns or lockouts are in effect at Lebanon High, Seven Oak, Green Acres, Riverview and Cascade schools.

In a lockdown, no one is allowed in or out. In a lockout, no one is allowed into the building.
