Shelter-in-place lifted for residents in Carpinteria after law enforcement activity

CARPINTERIA, Calif. - A shelter-in-place order was put in place in Carpinteria early Thursday morning.

The order was for residents near Carpinteria Avenue and Cramer Road.

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office had advised people to stay inside unless told to leave by authorities.

Aliso School was also on lockdown due to the nearby situation, but that lockdown is now lifted.

Heavy law enforcement presence including police and the sheriff's SWAT team members could be seen in the area.

At around 10 a.m. the shelter-in-place order was lifted and the scene was being cleared.

According to the Santa Barbara Police Department, warrants were served at three separate locations along the South Coast as part of an investigation into a January shooting that left two men dead. Three Carpinteria men were arrested earlier this week as part of that investigation.
