Muskego High School put on lockdown because of suspicious suspect in the area
MUSKEGO - Muskego High School was put on lockdown Tuesday afternoon after a suspicious suspect was reportedly seen near campus.
A Musekgo police officer said the school was locked down for up to an hour because they were concerned for students' safety. That lockdown has since been lifted.
"The police department was acting upon a credible tip from a parent regarding their child and a potentially violent situation," said Dr. Kelly Thompson, superintendent of Muskego-Norway Schools. "This potentially violent situation was not directed at Muskego High School or any Muskego High School student, staff member or administrator. The lockdown was a precautionary measure."
The school has dismissed their students, and police are still looking for the individual who prompted the scare. They would not say who provided the information on the suspect, but that the suspect never made it inside the school.
