Lockdown Lifted At White Swan High School After Gun Incident
A lock down has been lifted at White Swan High School after authorities say a suspect pointed a rifle at a Yakima County Sheriff's Deputy.
THE GOOD NEWS? NO INJURIES REPORTED BUT WHAT HAPPENED?
All students and staff are safe and no injuries reported. The 17-minute lock down was lifted shortly after 8:00 am Wednesday. The suspect, described as a juvenile male was arrested and is a member of the Yakima Nation so Tribal Police are now handling the investigation.
STUDENTS WERE TRANSFERRED TO HARRAH DURING THE LOCKDOWN
Officials with the Mt. Adams School District say during the lock down students were transferred to Harrah. The students have now returned to White Swan High School.
Sheriff's officials say they have a Deputy who is a School Resource Officer at the school but they're not saying what prompted the suspect to point the weapon at a Deputy.
THE THREAT WAS REPORTED NEAR THE SCHOOL
They say the call from the Deputy came from an area near the school.
Few other details are available because Tribal Police aren't releasing any information about the suspect other than to say he's a juvenile male who was arrested.
