Police are investigating a home-invasion robbery in which an occupant was shot on Oct. 28, 2015. The shooting triggered a lockdown at nearby Clovis High School.

Clovis police investigated a home-invasion robbery during which one victim was shot Wednesday in a neighborhood a few hundred feet from Clovis High School.

Police Sgt. Jim Koch said two robbers entered a house in the 1700 block of Robinwood Avenue around 8:45 a.m. They came in through an unlocked door.

During the robbery, one victim was shot. His injury was not life-threatening, Koch said.

The two thieves ran away and have not been caught. Police did not have their descriptions.

Clovis High was placed on lockdown after the shooting was reported, Koch said. The campus was placed on facility alert, meaning students were not permitted to leave. Classes continued as scheduled. The alert was lifted at 1:30 p.m., once authorities determined there was no danger to the students.

The incident was apparently not related to a home-invasion robbery on Oct. 21 near Willow and Alluvial avenues. That crime also took place in the morning and forced the lockdown of nearby Mountain View Elementary School, but Koch said there weren’t any similarities between the two crime scenes.
