Riverside High, Middle & Elementary school lockdown over

SPOKANE, Wash. - Information that a Riverside High School truant might be headed to the campus with a firearm put the school into lockdown status about 11:45 a.m. Tuesday.  Both the middle and elementary schools were locked down as well.

By 1:10 p.m., deputies responding to the call and searching for the 16-year-old suspect had failed to find him. The principal was the complainant on the call and he told a 911 operator that he received a call from a man who said the teen male was headed toward the school with a rifle.  The boy's grandmother reportedly lives in a mobile home park across the Newport Highway from the school.

No specific threat regarding the school, students or staff was received.  The incident remains under investigation.

The student in question has been located.  He skipped school  and was meeting up with a friend Tuesday afternoon.  He grabbed a couple of knives and a sword which he tried to conceal in a backpack.  The reporting witness believed the sword was a rifle slung over his shoulder.  The student has been interviewed and released with no criminal charges.
