HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Police have cleared the buildings and the lockdown has been lifted at Collegiate School after a false alarm prompts a search for a gunman on the campus.
Police say an alarm from the school was accidentally activated by a technician around 5:30 p.m. that corresponded with the alert for a gunman on campus. According to the Collegiate School website, the technician is an outside technology contract worker, not a student or employee.
Students and parents are now free to leave the campus. More information can be found on the Collegiate School website: http://www.collegiate-va.org/
