At 12:39 p.m. this afternoon, police received information that there may be a subject with a weapon in the area of Loch Raven High School. The school went on alert status while police searched the area around the school.
Police did not find anything during their search. They will remain in the area while Loch Raven High School and nearby Lutheran High School dismisses students.
An alert status at a school is less serious than a lock down. When a school is on alert status, activity inside the school continues as normal. However; no one is permitted to enter or exit the building.
