LYNNWOOD, Wash. — A lockdown at Meadowdale High School in Lynnwood was lifted after earlier reports of a possible gun at a nearby park, officials said.
The Lynnwood Police Department tweeted about the lockdown around 11:40 a.m., saying it was initiated after reports of a gun possibly being shown at a park at 5700 168th Street Southwest earlier Monday morning.
The Edmonds School District said the lockdown started at 10 a.m. and that all students are safe.
In a letter sent to parents, the district said that school officials were also made aware of a social media post that indicated a potential threat to campus, and the school was put on lockdown out of "an abundance of caution."
Police searched the park and campus and did not locate a suspect. They did question one person suspected of posting a threat, but it is unclear if the incidents are related, the letter said.
The Lynnwood Police Department tweeted that the lockdown was lifted around 12:20 p.m. and that they will continue to investigate the incident.
