MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Eden Prairie Police Department says a statement made by a student prompted a “soft lock down” of Central Middle School.
On Wednesday morning, the school notified police concerning a statement made by a student and, as a precautionary safety measure, the lockdown was implemented. After talking with the student in question, police determined the claims made were unsubstantiated and there was no credible threat to the safety of the students and faculty.
“Eden Prairie Police will continue to work closely with school administration regarding this incident; however, there is no criminal investigation at this time,” police said in a statement.
During the lockdown, the entrances were secured to the building, but classes proceeded as usual.
