BROWN DEER (WITI) — Brown Deer Middle and High Schools were placed under lockdown on Thursday afternoon, May 1st.

Brown Deer School District Superintendent Deb Kerr says the lockdown was a precaution — after a posting was discovered on Facebook that caused concern.

The post, which was discovered around 1:15 p.m., contained prayers and thoughts for an alleged shooting that had already taken place at the school.

As a result of the investigation, it was determined that the information posted was misinterpreted by the social media poster.  There was never a threat made towards any school or regarding any shooting.

The lockdown lasted approximately one hour in order to conduct this investigation.

Afterwards the school resumed normal activities without incident.
