Students and teachers at the Mobridge-Pollock School District had a bit of a scare just before noon on Monday as a Code black, lock-down situation occurred at the high school.
At about 11:30 a.m. a person carrying what looked like a shotgun was spotted crossing the parking lot of Mobridge-Pollock High School and going into the CTE building.
Law enforcement was alerted and were on the scene in less than two minutes. The schools were locked down as a precautionary measure.
The officers investigated the situation, found the long piece of metal a student had taken out of his vehicle to the CTE building.
The lock down was lifted. No one was in danger, but it could have been a terrible situation had it been a real weapon.
Kudos to the administration for their quick action and to the officers from the Mobridge Police Department, the Walworth County Sheriff’s Department and the Corson County Sheriff’s Department for the quick and professional handling of the situation.
