Lockdown Update

Students, staff and teachers in lockdown at St. John the Baptist for about 45 minutes early this afternoon.
District 8 Education Council chair Rob Fowler tells CHSJ News it all started when a student thought he saw a woman being abducted outside the school, ran in and told administrators who immediately locked down the school.

He tells us he believes an off-duty or retired police officer was trying to get a woman away from someone who had a weapon and sent the child packing to keep them safe and the child misunderstood what was happening.

Fowler says it's District 8 policy if there is any kind of threat to the school, a lockdown it put into effect.
