Colfax High School went to lockdown after tip
March 11, 2021
COLFAX — Colfax Junior-Senior High School went on lockdown for less than five minutes Wednesday after an anonymous call claimed a student was bringing a gun.
“We determined there was never a threat at any time,” said Whitman County Sheriff Brett Myers.
Deputies responded to the school at 11:15 a.m. and the lockdown was lifted by 11:20 a.m. The student was immediately identified, contacted, and spoken to, said Myers. He and his family were cooperative.
The call came from a blocked number. Once received, Principal David Gibb put the building into lockdown and called 911.
