School authorities notified the Gresham Police Department immediately, and the high school and nearby Hogan Cedars Elementary School were placed into “lockdown”.
A lockdown is defined as a situation where students are kept within their classrooms or inside the building until it has been established that an emergency or dangerous situation no longer exists. During a lockdown, the schools operate as usual with the exception that recesses are held indoors.
The Gresham Police Department is conducting an investigation.
