Totally and entirely SCARY!!!

So today my friend called me about 2 pm and says that the Primary School had a lockdown today. A guy came into the school with a gun...holy cow, instant goosebumps. She called back a few minutes later and said that is was a woman with a gun. She had her kids had been taken away the night before and she said that she wanted them...

Ok, the real story...Mk brought a note home from school with the following...at approximately 11:30 am this morning we had a incident take place at our Primary School that resulted in a lockdown. We had been notified by our local police department that a parent had made threatening statements the night before, which included the use of a firearem, and if the parent showed up to our campuses we were to call the police and go into a lockdown procedure. The parent did indeed show up at the Primary School, very upset over some personal family matters. A playground aide saw her and confronted her, and notified the office that she was on campus. The school immediately went into lockdown procedures in a 43-second time span in which all playgrounds were cleared. The police responded within minutes to apprehend the woman and remove her from our campus.

Wow!!! Who would have ever expected something like this in Eagar-ville. I guess that's what all schools that have had a gunman say. Still pretty scary, I'm glad that everything turned out the way it did.
