Last updated 1/25/2018 at Noon

A student is believed to have called in a fake bomb threat to Murrieta Valley High School, promoting a brief lockdown this morning, a school district official said.

The school received the bomb threat just before 10:30 a.m. and the campus was immediately put on lockdown, according to Karen Parris, a spokeswoman for the Murrieta Valley Unified School District.

A tweet by the Murrieta Police Department referred to the threat as ''minor.''

Officers searched the school, found no explosives and gave the all clear at about 10:50 a.m., according to Parris. The lockdown was lifted shortly after.

Police determined that the threat was not credible, Parris said.

A suspect who is a student at the school and a juvenile were being questioned by police.
