Pine City, Minn., school locked down
PINE CITY, Minn. — Students in Pine City High School were locked in their building Monday morning after a report of a student leaving home with a rifle, shotgun and ammunition.
The lockdown ended at 1:18 p.m. when Principal Terry Anderson posted a message on the school's website and made a public address announcement indicating that the danger had passed. Authorities caught the student elsewhere.
Anderson said the school was placed in “routine lockdown” as a precaution.
The Pine City Pioneer reported that the 15-year-old boy ran away from home Friday.
Classes continued during the lockdown, but students could not leave with building without a parent.
