California Area High School Put On Lockdown
In a letter to parents and guardians on Wednesday, Dr. Laura Jacob, Superintendent of the California Area School District said police were called in after an AR-15 magazine round bag was found on the floor of a classroom. Jacob says there was no magazine, ammunition or gun, just the bag for the magazine. She says authorities were called in and the school went into lock-down mode. According to Jacob, all the lockers were checked and nothing was found. She says that as a matter of caution, there will be an increased police presence on the campus on Thursday and all students entering the high school will use the same entrance and will have their bags searched. Jacob is asking anyone with information regarding the magazine bag to call her at 724-785-5800.
