A gun scare that prompted the evacuation of an elementary school campus in Woodside on Saturday turned out to be teens carrying pellet guns, San Mateo County sheriff's officials said. 

Deputies responded at about 2:30 p.m. Saturday to Woodside Elementary School at 3195 Woodside Road, where two people were reported to be dressed in camouflage and armed with rifles and a machete. 

About 100 students and parents were on the campus at the time and were evacuated safely, sheriff's officials said. 

Deputies quickly found the teens and detained and questioned them, then turned them over to family members, sheriff's officials said.

i hope the kids were detained at juvi . i wouldn't like to think that there are different rules for kids up upper class families.

i would agree with dorothea, all kids should be treated equally no matter what color there skin is,or if it was Woodside if it was Hoover would sheriffs responded the same?, But it was nice that everything turned out ok and there was no one hurt, not like many other cases recently Andy Lopez from Santa Rosa Ca. Hopefully that dream that all parents want that we are all treated the same
