DAVIS-

Reports of an armed person in a Davis neighborhood forced four schools to lock down Thursday morning.

The Davis Unified School District got reports of a person seen with a weapon between Oak Avenue and B Street. They called police and put Davis High School, North Davis, King High School and Davis School for Independent Study on lockdown. They also took precautions at the district offices.

Officers found a BB gun in a park; they questioned a person and let them go. The schools are no longer locked down.

In a letter to parents and guardians, the Davis Unified Superintendent, Winfred Roberson stated:

“We want to assure parents/guardians all safety protocols are in place and all precautions were taken.  DHS, North Davis, King High and DSIS schools were on lockdown and have been released.”
