SPOKANE, Wash. — Spokane police swarmed several area high schools Friday afternoon after receiving bogus calls about an active shooter.
Right after 11:00 a.m. Friday, 911 received a call reporting an active shooter at Lewis and Clark High School in downtown Spokane.
The caller indicated a person was armed and actively harming people at Lewis and Clark and there were multiple casualties.
After responding immediately to the call, the Spokane Police Department (SPD) entered the school where they did not find any signs of a shooting.
Law enforcement conducted an extensive search of the entire school that took about an hour.
It was later confirmed that no shooting incident occurred and there was no injuries or sign of an emergency.
SPD responded to three local high schools on Friday after Lewis and Clark High School reportedly received a prank phone call threatening a shooting.
Spokane Public Schools and Spokane Police confirmed to KREM 2 the call appeared to be a hoax.
Lewis and Clark High School was placed on lockdown while police responded to the prank call. Rogers High School and North Central High School were also placed on lockdown "out of an abundance of caution."
Lockdowns at Rogers and North Central have now been lifted. Lewis and Clark is currently in "Secure and Teach," meaning the outside doors to the school are locked and normal activities will continue inside the school.
