Also, contrary to reports on social media, the sheriff’s SWAT team wasn’t called out to the school, the school was never placed on lockdown and faculty members weren’t injured. No weapons were involved either.

Faculty members had the incident largely in control when sheriff’s Patrol Division units and sheriff’s detectives from the Juvenile Division arrived, Sheriff Pohlmann said.
