PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say a 66-year-old man was arrested after firing his shotgun near two Portland schools in an effort to scare crows off his property.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office says at about 12:15 p.m. Monday a teacher at Catlin Gabel School in southwest Portland reported hearing a gunshot and seeing a man run into a home with a shotgun. That school and another then went into temporary lockdown.

The sheriff’s office says deputies quickly located a man fitting the description of the shooter. Deputies say Mark Mordini told them he fired his shotgun once to scare the crows.

He was arrested and booked into Washington County Jail on investigation of unlawful use of a weapon.

It wasn’t known if he had a lawyer.
