Making use of Instagram Story, the 55-year-old shared with followers details about the lockdown at San Juan Hills High School in San Juan Capistrano, California. "There was somebody that came to my daughter's school today and they put them in lockdown. He did have a weapon," she explained in a video post. "The kids are traumatized, the teachers are traumatized."

On what it was like for those inside the school, the TV personality spilled, "They had the students barricade the door with bookshelves, they were laying on the floor. One teacher handed out hammers, another one had a fire extinguisher ready to go after somebody. Kids were crying, 'I don't want to die.' "

In the video, Tamra also recalled how she felt upon receiving her daughter's texts informing her about the lockdown. "You get the text, and you're so helpless. There's nothing you can do in this f**king world. I am so sick of it. I'm so sick of what's going on," she bluntly pointed out.

Fortunately, Tamra's daughter, whom she had with her ex-husband Simon Barney, was unharmed. "If you just saw my text, I want you to know that everything's OK and they caught the guy," she assured in her video post. However, she noted, "My daughter now doesn't want to go back to school. It's her senior year. This has got to stop. It's got to stop."

In the shot, it could be seen that the teen warned her mother, "We're having a shelter in place not a drill – not a drill. We're being locked in the classes with the lights off."

Tamra, in response, asked if Sophia was okay. In return, Sophia replied, "Yes I'm in a classroom we're hiding right now … just heard police sirens." When Tamra asked if there was a shooter on the campus, Sophia responded, "I don't know. No one knows."
