Highland Park High School is on Lockdown after Box of Bullet Shells Discovered in Bathroom
Yesterday morning, Highland Park High School was evacuated after school officials found a threatening note in a boys' bathroom. It was the same boys' bathroom where three similar notes had been found the month before. In all four cases, a search of the school revealed nothing.
The danger became a bit more tangible today. The school was placed on lockdown this morning after a box of .22 shells was found in a different boys bathroom.
School district spokeswoman Helen Williams told the Morning News that students and teachers are being kept in their rooms while police investigate. They are no doubt sick of having the specter of violence hanging over their heads.
