NO THREAT: Lockdown lifted at Brown Deer Middle, High Schools
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.
