Bowsher students dismissed after lockdown, no weapons found
Police were called for reports of someone with a gun but do not believe the call was credible.
TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Students at Bowsher High School were dismissed in stages Tuesday afternoon following a lockdown.
According to school administrators, someone called 9-1-1 claiming there was a person in the school with a gun. Police arrived and searched classrooms and other open areas in the building but did not discover anything. Students were released just before three and police remained at the school through dismissal.
“As the safety of our students and staff members is the number one priority for Toledo Public Schools, anyone found to be connected with making false claims toward any TPS school or to be in possession of a weapon will face disciplinary action, which could include expulsion,” school officials warned in a statement. “Prosecution is also possible.”
