Carlsbad Schools Lockdown Lifted

A threatening email prompted all schools in the Carlsbad district to voluntarily lock down.

The voluntary lockdown of all Carlsbad district schools has been lifted after nearly an hour and a half of lockdown.

All Carlsbad schools were placed on a voluntary lockdown after an unidentified  parent received an unfounded alert through their mobile device, apparently intended for students at  Georgetown University in Washington D.C. The alert warned of a Carlsbad Campus lock down because of a possible man with a gun on campus.

The concerned parent called the Carlsbad Unified School District and shared this alert information. As a precaution and to insure their student’s safety, the CUSD advised the Carlsbad Police Department School Resource Officers and initiated a district wide campus lock down while police investigated.

The Carlsbad Police Department increased patrols around and in the campuses, until all CUSD Campuses were cleared.  No suspects or suspicious activity was found.
