SILVERADO, Calif. (KTLA) — Orange County Sheriff’s deputies on Wednesday responded to a report of gunshots at Jackson Ranch, an equestrian center in rural east Orange County.

Two women called 911 about 11 a.m. after hearing what they said were bullets fired near a barn, authorities said.

“At this point, the preliminary information indicates that nobody has been injured by gunfire,” Lt. Jeff Hallock of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department said, adding that a search operation was ongoing.

A command post was set up about a mile-and-a-half away at Silverado Elementary school, located on East Santiago Canyon Road.

Sky5 video showed 10 evacuees — nine adults and one child — exiting a SWAT vehicle after being driven to the command post, escorted by sheriff’s deputies.

Santiago Canyon Road was closed between Williams and Modjeska Canyon roads.

It was reopened around 9 p.m.
