UPDATE: Police say no threats were made before Denver lock down

Posted:

DENVER (KWWL) – After concluding his investigation the Denver Police Chief says there were no threats made before the Denver Schools went into lock down.

Originally the Bremer Waverly Law Enforcement Center had received a report that a student left school property and would possibly be returning with a gun. The Denver Community School went into lock down for the safety of the students.

Denver schools went into lock down around 9:45 Tuesday morning and by 10:30 the lock down was over.

School officials say this is the first time they've had to put the school on lock down.

"We practice lock down drills every year along with tornado drills and fire drills. We also speak with the classrooms with the kids and practice. We have a safety plan here and the kids did a great job and everybody did what they're supposed to. The teachers followed protocol and I'm proud of our staff and students," said Superintendent of Schools, Kathy Enslin.

The student who supposedly made the threats and left school grounds was found at a family member's house in Waterloo. He was taken into custody by the Waterloo Police Department and handed over to the Black Hawk County Sheriff's Department. He was then transported back to Bremer County.

No charges will be filed in this case.
