Police looking for suspects who caused lockdown at 2 schoolsWritten by Janela Carrera
Guam - Talofofo Elementary School and Notre Dame High School students were in for quite a scare today as the schools went into lockdown.
School administrators from Talofofo Elementary School say two armed men were spotted in the nearby jungle. Guam Police Department Spokesperson Capt. Kim Santos says students saw two men with rifles and they were described as "armed men wearing masks." School Principal John Wesolowski says the lockdown went into effect at about 11:40 this morning and after about a two hour sweep of the jungle by police and their SWAT team, the lockdown was lifted at around 2:15 pm.
"When the students were out at recess they thought that they saw some hunters or somebody in the jungle with weapons and they reported it to me at which time we went into lockdown to make sure the students were safe," explained Wesolowski. "There was a sweep of the jungle by the police department and they didn’t find anything in the back and they gave the all clear."
"This case is still being investigated to try and determine who the suspects are and GPD is working with the Department of Agriculture, Division of Aquatic and Wildlife to ensure that hunters are in compliance of all laws," said Santos.
