Search puts Dorr Elementary on soft lockdown

SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WTVG) - Lucas County Sheriff's dispatchers tell 13abc that Dorr Elementary was on a soft lockdown while they searched for a man in the area this morning.

Dispatchers say that there is no threat to the public, but they didn't specify why they were looking for the man or if he was known to be armed.

Kristina White with Springfield Schools tells 13abc that a soft lockdown is when classes resume as normal, but all exterior doors are locked and students are kept inside for recess.

White says that as soon as the soft lockdown was issued, parents were notified through an instant alert.

The school was given the all-clear around noon, and the soft lockdown was lifted.
