The Latest on a search for a possible gunman at an Army Reserve training facility in Northern California (all times local):

2:05 p.m.

Authorities say they've nearly completed a search of a Northern California U.S. Army Reserve installation without finding a gunman and that there is no active threat. 

Law enforcement agencies swarmed the Camp Parks Reserve Forces Training Area in suburban San Francisco on Tuesday morning after police received a report of a possible shooter on the sprawling complex about 35 miles east of the city.  No shots were reported. 

The Alameda County sheriff's office said authorities have searched about 70 percent of the complex and found nothing suspicious. A press conference has been scheduled for about 3 p.m. 

1:40 p.m. 

The superintendent in the Northern California city of Dublin has ordered students to shelter in place at all schools in summer session as police investigate reports of a possible gunman at a nearby U.S. Army Reserve training facility. 

School officials say the order isn't a lockdown. Students attending summer school and other programs will be kept on campus until their parents pick them up. 

Alameda County sheriff's Sgt. Ray Kelly says authorities are searching the Camp Parks Reserve Forces Training Area after initial reports of a possible shooter. 

But he says no one has been spotted and those reports have not been confirmed. No gunshots have been heard.

Reports of a possible gunman led to a lockdown at a U.S. Army Reserve training facility in Northern California on Tuesday as police search a residential area at the center, authorities said. 

There were initial reports of a possible shooter at the Camp Parks Reserve Forces Training Area, but no one has been spotted and those reports have not been confirmed, Alameda County sheriff's Sgt. Ray Kelly said. 

No gunshots have been heard. Multiple police agencies from areas east of San Francisco are searching the center. 

"We heard a huge siren say, `Everyone go into your house,"' said Ray Pauly, whose window overlooks the facility. 

He said he didn't hear any gunshots, but authorities were lined up and down the street outside his home. 

The Camp Parks Reserve Forces Training Area is a semi-active mobilization and training center for Army Reserve personnel
