PRESTON, Wash. (AP) - The King County Sheriff’s Office says a YMCA camp in Preston was on lockdown for about two hours after gunfire was heard nearby.

Officials say there were no known injuries, and all of the children at Camp Terry were safe after Thursday’s shootings. The lockdown was called off at about 2:30 p.m., and all roads reopened.

Deputies searched the woods on foot and by air near the camp for several hours, but they did not find the source of the gunfire.

KOMO-TV reports (https://bit.ly/22ANYfD ) that as many as 60 gunshots were heard in the area of Southeast 86th Street and 311th Avenue SE, about four miles east of Issaquah.

A sheriff spokesman says they didn’t immediately know where the gunfire originated.
