What happens during a school lockdown?
Ammunition found in a toilet at an elementary school south of Dallas caused a lockdown on Tuesday morning.
The ammunition was found at around 8 a.m. at Life School’s elementary charter, at 777 S. IH-35 E. in Red Oak.
Officers from several agencies searched the school for several hours, according to the Red Oak Police Department. Officers found two Glock 43 pistol magazines and eight rounds of 9mm pistol ammunition.
At around 2 p.m., a father who was picking up his student contacted police and told them his child had taken two spare pistol magazines and the ammo from their house.
“The father advised that the actual firearm had remained secured inside his personal gun safe at his residence and is cooperating with the investigation,” police said in a news release. “The Red Oak Police Department Criminal Investigation Division is completing their investigation of the incident.”
