Atascadero High School Lockdown – Two students at North County Christian have reported to the police department at their school that they have seen a man in the neighborhood near their school who was armed with a gun. These students say they spotted the man. The Atascadero Police Department was kind enough to supply us with this information. As a direct response to the occurrence that took place, the lockdown procedure was adopted at both Atascadero Middle School and Atascadero High School. Additionally, North County Christian was placed under lockdown as a precautionary measure. The original order to remain in place and shelter in place was upgraded to a lockdown as soon as officials began to arrive in the area at roughly 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
This occurred after the initial order was given to remain in place and shelter in place. In the case that there was an actual danger to the community, this took place. Lockdowns were released shortly after 2:10 p.m. at both North County Christian School and Atascadero Middle School, and parents were asked to pick up their children at approximately 2:25 p.m. after lockdowns were lifted shortly after that time.
After authorities determined that none of the damaged areas posed a threat to public safety, Atascadero High School was granted permission to reopen at roughly 2:45 in the afternoon. This decision was taken after it was determined that the school was not in any danger. Although the official search was terminated shortly after 3 o’clock in the afternoon, patrols will continue in the area as they have been doing up until this point. The search was called off a little while after three o’clock in the afternoon.
The officials assert that they looked in every conceivable location in the area where the crime took place, but they were unable to identify the person responsible for the offense. If you have any information regarding the suspect, you are asked to contact the Atascadero Police Department at the following number: 805-461-5051. Anyone who is under the impression that they may be in possession of access to this material is highly encouraged to get in touch with us as soon as humanly possible.
