Sheriff’s Office: Central High School firearm scare, a hoax

- Advertisement -

UPDATE:

Deputies have completed a secondary search of the Central High School campus. 

Investigators say the incident is a hoax.

Deputies were initially called to Central High School regarding reports of a person walking onto campus with a firearm. At no time was there an active shooter on campus. 

Deputies conducted an initial search of the campus, and then a secondary search of the campus in an abundance of caution. 

Again, investigators say this report is a hoax. Central High School and the surrounding schools remain on lockdown. 

The school will remain on lockdown until a roll call of the students is complete. Parents wishing to pick up their children, will need to be patient, as this process could take a while to complete.
