A Colorado Springs high school went into lockdown while police searched in the area for a wanted felon late Tuesday morning.
Police said the felon is considered violent but did not release the felon’s name or what the person is wanted for.
Colorado Springs School District 11 tweeted just before 11 a.m. that Coronado High School was in a precautionary lockdown. Devra Ashby, a spokeswoman for the district, said the lockdown was enacted after a relative of a student who “should not have been at the school” was trying to pick up a student.
Ashby did not say why the relative was not allowed at the school. The lockdown was lifted 30 minutes later. Police did on comment on Ashby’s statement.
The felon has not been located, but the search near the school was suspended.
