SAN BRUNO (CBS SF) – Authorities locked down a San Bruno elementary school early Thursday afternoon as police searched for two suspects in an attempted residential burglary.

According to police, officers were investigating the residential burglary in the Crestmoor neighborhood, close to the location of John Muir Elementary on Cambridge Lane.
