This morning three schools, Hazelwood Elementary, Rainier Middle School and Auburn Mountainview High, went on lock-down. HES and RMS went on lock-down as APD searched for 2 suspects believed to be involved in a nearby home burglary. AMHS went into lock-down as a precautionary measure.
While the lock-downs at HES and AMHS were lifted, RMS remained on lock down unrelated to the original incident. One of the students reported in a text message to their parent that an unknown individual had been knocking on an exterior window. This triggered APD to do a second sweep of the school, again with K-9 units.
After the school was cleared the lockdown was lifted.
As of 12:00pm the lock-downs were lifted, however APD remained in the area with a secure parameter.
