For the second morning in a row, McKinleyville High School was placed on lockdown due to a report of a person on or near campus with a weapon. And just like yesterday, law enforcement searched the campus and determined that there was no threat.
The Northern Humboldt Union High School District sent out a text message to the campus community at 9:16 a.m., saying, “MHS campus is on lockdown due to law enforcement calling to report a person on campus with a weapon. We will let you know we have further information.”
Three minutes later, another message: “We rec’d update from law enforcement, they did not see a threat on campus. Received a report from a comm. member. LE working to clear campus. Update to follow.”
At 9:36 a.m. the district reported that law enforcement had determined there was no threat and lifted the lockdown. More information will be released via email, the district said.
