Fake 911 Call Leads to Short Lockdown

Alert

This morning at 9:09 a.m., Boulder City Police Dispatch received a “spoofed” call from someone claiming to be a teacher in Boulder City High School, supposedly hiding from a gunman in the school. 

“The school was locked-down and our on-site School Resource Officer followed our immediate action training and protocols and went into active shooter response. In less than 90-seconds, strike teams consisting of multiples officers were deployed inside the school,” said Boulder City Police Chief Tim Shea. “Our teams advanced throughout the building and found no evidence of any threat. We later learned that a neighboring school outside our jurisdiction received a similar call just moments after we received ours.” 

The lockdown lasted less than 45 minutes, and officers have cleared the scene. These spoofing/swatting incidents are happening in school districts across the country. “These threats are a crime and will be investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” Chief Shea added.
