Hoquiam schools locked down and student in custody

Hoquiam High School was under lock-down today and a student has been taken into custody.

The Hoquiam Police Department tells KXRO that Hoquiam High School staff received a rumor that a 14-year old student might have been in possession of a weapon at school.

Police say as a precaution the school was placed in lock-down while police responded.

According to Hoquiam Police at one point the student allegedly damaged a door in the front of the school.

They say the student was detained and no weapon was found, but the student was arrested for malicious mischief and transported to the station

The lock-down was then lifted by the school staff.

Hoquiam Police Chief Jeff Myers says “The lock-down and response were exactly as expected and the school did a good job in immediately responding as all such information is taken seriously.”
