Lockdown at Shorecrest High School lifted after extensive search, deputies say

SHORELINE, Wash. — The lockdown at Shorecrest High School was lifted after an extensive search revealed no weapons on campus, deputies said.

The school was placed on lockdown around noon when two students brought ammunition to school. The lockdown was lifted shortly before 3 p.m. after deputies conducted an extensive search with explosive detection dogs and no weapons were found.

Shorecrest High School is located in Shoreline and is in the Shoreline School District.

Deputies said both students attend Shorecrest High School.

Kellogg Middle School, located just north of the high school campus, was initially placed on lockout during the investigation. The lockout was lifted just before 1 p.m.

District officials said a lockdown is when all exterior and classroom doors and windows are locked and students remain in their classroom.

“No one is permitted to enter or leave the school during a lockdown,” district officials said.

Officials said a lockout is when all exterior doors are secured and no one goes in or out, but normal operations continue inside the school.

Detectives interviewed students at both schools and two explosives detection dogs were brought in to do a sweep of the high school.
