Highland Park High School on Lockdown After Bullets Found in Boys Bathroom

This is following a statement from the school’s principal, Walt Kelly, sent home yesterday:

We are asking all students to enter the building through either the front doors on Emerson or through the student entrance on Westchester. All other entrances to the school will be locked tomorrow morning, and faculty, staff, and campus security are instructed to be especially vigilant in the days ahead.

In an email to the HPISD community, officials said a box of .22 caliber shells were found.

UPDATE: The lockdown was lifted and students were sent home for the second straight day.
