Law Enforcement Search For Suspect Near Schools

Two Wayne County schools take precautions as police search for a suspect nearby. Thursday afternoon, law enforcement informed Wayne County Public Schools they were actively searching for a suspect in the area of Spring Creek High School and Spring Creek Middle School.  WCPS says both schools were placed on a “soft lockdown” as a precaution.  That means instruction and movement inside the buildings continued, but exterior doors were locked and all outdoor activities were cancelled.  Extra law enforcement and staff were present in the schools’ parking lots during dismissal times.  Both Spring Creek Middle and High have cancelled their after school programs, athletic practices, and athletic events for Thursday afternoon.
