Lockdowns lifted in Evergreen School District

Posted: Updated:
VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

No credible threats were found by police during a search of Evergreen High School in Vancouver.

A rumor about a gun being brought to Evergreen High School led to lockdowns at Evergreen High School, Cascade Middle School, Burton Elementary School and Legacy High School.

Vancouver police spokeswoman Kim Kapp said no one made any threats about a shooting, but officers performed a sweep of the high school as a precaution.

A post from Evergreen Public Schools on Facebook said, "Evergreen High School and Legacy High School are currently locked down while police investigate an incident near the campus of EHS. Students and staff are safe inside the buildings."

Less than an hour later, the lockdowns had been lifted at all of the schools.

No arrests were made.
