If this home backs onto Palo Verde school, is this going to affect school tomorrow?

What are the odds the police are talking to an empty house at this point?

I'm not sure if it backs exactly onto Palo Verde, but I was at the Y tonight and drove by twice within 2 hours and they were still there. The home is very close to the corner of Ross and Ames. If your heading north towards the Y from Loma Verde, you turn left onto Ames and its about 2 to 3 houses down on the right side. Hope that helps...

Your address is wrong. This isn't happening in Iowa.

I would rather a waste of resources than the opposite. Could be like San Jose where they wouldn't even come to your house for a call like this. Glad everyone is safe.

I don't know about anyone else nearby, but as I was attending a troop meeting in Palo Verde, at about 8:00, I saw a two middle aged African-American men wearing dark clothes walk through the school. They fit the description on the article.

I trust you have given this information to PAPD. This sounds exactly the sort of info they have requested from the article.
