Update: Police: No Threat Made to Richland High School

Lockdown Lifted at Highlands Middle School

UPDATE: Richland High School was on lockdown from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. today.

A student spoke to an officer this morning because his sister from Carmichael Middle School had texted him stating that someone was going to “shoot at” Richland High School today.

Police went over to the middle school and interviewed the student there who had witnessed two other Richland High students get into an argument in class yesterday and as he was telling people about it, he said one of the students is the type of student who would bring a gun to school.

According to the district, that statement got twisted and turned and eventually led to the text message from the CMS student to her sibling at RHS about RHS getting “shot at” today.

The situation has been resolved and the Richland Police Department has established that no threat was ever made to RHS, during or after the argument between to the two students.
