Received late this morning. The Van Buren County Democrat continues to report, and update, on this matter:
Press Release January 10, 2018 from Andrew Vining, Superintendent of Clinton School District
At 5:30 p.m. yesterday evening I was informed by our School Resource Officer, David Hess, and made aware of a telephone call received by local law enforcement. At that time law enforcement did not feel it was a credible imminent threat to our district.
At 7:25 a.m. this morning I was informed by law enforcement that we should lock down school until the suspects could be detained. That is when I decided to order the lockdown at the school. At this point in time it was too late to stop the buses or the school traffic already unloading students.
It is the obligation of the district to make sure students are safe at all times. By 8:15 a.m. law enforcement had detained the suspects and the lockdown was lifted.
