    Reports of an intruder and possible shots fired at a U.S. Army facility in Dublin Tuesday are unfounded, Alameda County Sheriff's Office officials said.

    The investigation conducted by multiple law enforcement agencies prompted a lockdown as officers searched the Parks Reserve Forces Training Area, also known as Camp Parks, for the reported intruder. The sheriff's office also used a drone in the search.

    Dublin schools in the area with summer school and day care programs were also told to shelter in place. Authorities first received reports of the situation at about 11 a.m., Dublin Unified School District officials said.

    The sheriff's office, which runs nearby Santa Rita Jail, also said that reports of an escape at the jail are false and that the jail has nothing to do with the situation at Camp Parks.
