False alarm causes high school lockdown
The Ashland High School went on lock down Monday afternoon due to reported suspicious activity. Nothing was found, and the lockdown was lifted about 45 minutes later.
Around 3 p.m., the Ashland Police Department received an anonymous call saying that a person was walking toward Ashland High School about two blocks away wearing a bullet proof vest.
Several officers responded and advised administration to put the school on lockdown.
Officers double-checked the campus during the lockdown and surrounding area.
During the second sweep police talked to the initial caller who said they did not see a weapon, and the person may not have even been wearing body armor.
The lockdown was lifted, and officers remained on campus while students and faculty left.
