Shoreline school worker spots man with rifle near preschool

Posted: Updated:

SHORELINE, Wash. (AP) - The Shoreline School District locked down its schools in the district just north of Seattle after a school food service employee saw a man reportedly carrying a rifle near a district preschool.

District spokesman Craig Degginger says the employee called 911 and the district closed all its schools while King County sheriff's deputies looked for the man.

The Shoreline Children's Center is adjacent to Meridian Park Elementary School, where deputies are searching with dogs.

The district says children are safe and it's asking parents not to come to the schools. Students who were on buses were taken to the Spartan Recreation Center where they could be picked up.

There are 14 schools plus the preschool in the district. Degginger says both high schools had already opened when the incident began around 8 a.m. Other students were on their way to school and some were still at home.

    YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) - Washington state's strict state laws prevent the public from taking in and treating injured wild animals without a permit, or from earning money for providing care. That leaves the state Department of Fish and Wildlife with few options when officers fined injured eagles, deer or other wild animals. Department wildlife program director Eric Gardner tells the Yakima Herald -Republic that the region needs more wildlife rehabilitators.
