Liberal High School goes on Lockdown

Joe Denoyer - March 1, 2023 9:59 am

At approximately 9:10 a.m. this morning local law enforcement received a call of a possible threat at LHS. Members of law enforcement were in the building immediately following the call and swept the entire building to ensure that there was no threat to students. It was determined by law enforcement that LHS was part of a state-wide false alarm that went out to several high schools throughout Kansas.

All three LHS buildings were swept and clear of any possible threat. The students were released from the lockdown shortly after the all-clear was given.

The Liberal Police Department reported that at 9:10 am the Liberal/Seward County Communications Center received a call about a shooting that occurred at Liberal High School. The caller claimed they were a specific teacher in a certain room at LHS. USD 480 confirmed they do not have an employee by the name given and the room number did not exist at LHS. Officers searched the school and found no evidence to support this report.

According to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, there were numerous false reports that came in across the State of Kansas in reference to active shooters at schools this morning. At this time, all of these calls have been false.
