(La Porte, IN) - La Porte High School was placed under lockdown this morning. So far, police and school officials have not revealed why.
HTNN spoke to freshman Juliana Wolozanski, who said she was in choir class around 8:45 a.m. when a lockdown announcement was made. She said no reason for the lockdown was given.
Wolozanski said it wasn’t long before many of her classmates began receiving images of police officers outside the school on their phones.
“People’s phones started blowing up with photos and videos of cop cars lined across the outside of the school,” Wolozanski said.
Wolozanski said the images sent by seniors waiting to get inside the building appeared to show a half dozen or more police vehicles. The lockdown allegedly lasted for about 30 minutes.
Wolozanski heard what sounded like banging in a hallway before the lockdown was lifted.
