All clear given at Princeton High School, active shooter report is false

Police: All clear given at Princeton High School, active gunman’s report is false



ARE YOU? I HAVE A POLICE HERE NOW, A LIEUTENANT FROM THE SHARONVILLE POLICE SERVICE. SORRY TO MODIFY TOPICS A LITTLE. HOW IS IT GOING? WHAT CAN YOU TELL US? WHAT IS GOING ON? QUICKLY HIT HERE ABOUT 10:15 AM FOR A CALL ON AN ACTIVE SHOOTING AND INJURY INSIDE THE SCHOOL. WE CAN QUICKLY ASSUM THAT IT WAS A HOAX. WANT TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE OUTSIDE KNOW THAT ALL STUDENTS ARE SAFE. THERE ARE NO INJURIES AT THIS EVENT. ALL STUDENTS GET WRONG AND EVERYONE IS GOOD. DUE TO THE INTERFERENCE, THE HIGH SCHOOL CLOSES FOR THE DAY. HOPEFULLY TO GET THE INFORMATION ON WHERE PEOPLE SHOULD GO. IF THEY ARE A BUS WRITING STUDENT THEY WILL BE HOME FROM SCHOOL AND I THINK THEY LOAD THE BUSES NOW. IT IS TAKEN TO THEIR NORMAL LOCATION. IF THE STUDENTS ARE DRIVERS, THEY GET IN THEIR CAR AND WILL BE ABLE TO GO HOME. WHEN STUDENTS NEED TO BE COLLECTED, THE STUDENTS WALK TO THE VINEYARD CHURCH ON THE CENTURY CIRKELBOULEVARD IN SPRINGDALE. THAT’S THE REUNIFICATION PLACE. WE ASK THAT NO PARENTS COME TO HIGH SCHOOL ALTHOUGH EVERYONE IS SAFE. WE HAVE A HEAVY POLICE PRESENCE AND WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE PEOPLE WHO CAUSE A LOT OF CONFUSION. CENTRAL CIRKELBOULEVARD, THE VINEYARD CHURCH. WE HAVE OFFICERS AND SOME SCHOOL REPRESENTATIVES. EVERYONE IS SAFE. EVERYTHING IS FINE. THIS WAS NOT A GOOD CALL. NOW WE ARE IN CROWD MANAGEMENT MODE. KARIN: MIDDLE SCHOOL IS NOT AFFECTED IN TERMS OF EARLY RELEASE, RIGHT? >> MEDIUM SCHOOL HOLDS THEIR NORMAL DAY. THEY GO A LITTLE BIT LOCKDOWN. THE CALL CONCERNS THE HIGH SCHOOL AND THE SCHOOL IS IF CLEARED. IT’S ONE OF THE REASONS WE TOOK SO LONG TO GIVE EVERYTHING CLEAR AN OFFICIAL. WE GO ROOM TO ROOM TO MAKE SURE THERE WAS NOTHING. KARIN: Talk about this. THERE WAS A THREAT. NOT CALLED UP? WAS IT THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA? >> IT WAS A DIRECT 911 CALL FROM A PERSON WHO WAS TO BE A STUDENT AT SCHOOL AND DESCRIBED A SHOOTER AND MULTIPLE INJURIES. I THINK THE 911 CALL WAS TRANSFERRED FROM CINCINNATI. ONE OF — WHEN THE DISTRIBUTORS RECEIVE SUCH A CALL, THEY WASTE NO TIME, SO WE HAVE A HUGE RESPONSE FROM ALL THESE AGENCIES. KARIN: YOU HAD ABOUT EVERY AGENCY HERE IN GREATER CINCINNATI. YOU WERE HERE FAST. I WAS A FEW MILES AWAY AND YOU HAD SURROUNDED THE PLACE. TALK ABOUT WHEN IT’S A THREAT AND YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT’S HAPPENING. DO YOU CALL EVERYONE IN? >> SOMETHING FROM THIS BIG, IT ABSOLUTELY — IT GOES ALL COUNTIES. WE HAD WESTCHESTER, CINCINNATI POLICE, THE SHERIFF’S HELICOPTER, COUNTY SWAT TEAM. ALL OUR SCHOOLS IN PRINCETON, WE HAVE FULL TIME SCHOOL OFFICES THAT ALREADY CHECKED ROOMS, TRYING TO GIVE THE THREAT CREDIBLE. WE GLAD OUR ANSWER AND HOW WELL WE FEEL SUPPORTED. THERE ARE PROBABLY SEVERAL HUNDRED POLICE OFFICER. KARIN: THERE WERE VARIOUS THREATS IN SCHOOLS AROUND OHIO. DO YOU KNOW IF THIS IS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS? >> I CAN’T SPEAK THAT. CLEARLY THEY ARE SIMILAR CALLS. ONE, COUNTY, STARK COUNTY, THERE WERE SIMILAR CALLS. WE CAN COMPOSE TWO AND TWO. WE ARE STILL IN CROWD MANAGEMENT MODE, ENSURE STUDENTS ARE REUNITED AND THERE IS LESS CONFUSION AT SCHOOL. THEN IT WILL BECOME A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION FOR EVERYTHING. KARIN: WHO WILL TREAT THAT? HE SAYS THE CALL IS FROM CINCINNATI. DO YOU THINK WHO ALSO NAMED CINCINNATI IN THE CITY? >> WE ALREADY HAVE PEOPLE WHO SEE WHERE THAT COMES FROM. WE WILL START IT. IF THERE ARE MULTIPLE JURISDICTIONS, IT MAY BE A MULTIPLE AGENCY OR A FEDERAL THING. KARIN: HAVE YOU HAD A CHANCE TO TALK TO ONE OF THE STUDENTS JUST RELEASEED? IF YOU HAVE, HOW DO THEY DO IT? ALTHOUGH IT WAS A HOAX, DURING THOSE MOMENTS, I WAS OUT HERE WITH THE PARENTS ON THE PHONES WITH THEIR LOVERS. They panicked, tried to be quiet and said, “MOM, please come and get ME.” HOW ARE THEY NOW? >> THE STUDENTS I HAVE SPOKEN FROM LEAVING ARE IN GOOD SPIRIT. BUT THE TIME WE ARE INSIDE, GOING ROOM TO ROOM IT CAUSED A HUGE AMOUNT OF PANIC, THAT’S WHY WE ARE SO FRUSTRATED AND SO ANGRY THE PEOPLE WHO FIND THIS IS SOME LEVEL OF ENTERTAINMENT TO DO THIS. WE WILL DO EVERYTHING TO HOLD SOMEONE RESPONSIBLE FOR IT BECAUSE IT LITERALLY TERRORISED A LOT OF THESE CHILDREN. KARIN: I KNOW THAT THE SHARONVILLE POLICE DEPARTMENT WORKS VERY CLOSELY WITH THE SCHOOL DISTRICT. IS THIS FOR YOU AT PRINCETON CITY SCHOOLS? >> WE HAVE. THIS IS A NEW BUILDING. WE HAVE DONE MANY TOURS AND OTHER THINGS IN THE BUILDING. ALL OUR OFFICERS HAVE KEYS SO THEY CAN SWIPE THROUGH DOORS AND DO WHAT THEY HAVE TO DO. GREAT ENOUGH, WE HAVE AN ACTIVE SHOOTER TRAINING NEXT WEEK. A LOT OF THAT WILL APPLY. MAYBE WE CAN TAKE SOME CLASSES FROM TODAY AND APPLY TO OUR WORKOUT NEXT WEEK. KARIN: LIEUTENANT, THANK YOU for throwing the air and setting the record straight. THERE WAS A LOT OF CONFUSES FROM PARENTS. >> IT IS MY JOB TO PUBLISH THE WORD WHERE TO PICK UP YOUR CHILD. VINEYARD CHURCH. IF YOUR STUDENT IS A DRIVER THEY CAN DRIVE. IF THEY ARE A BUS RIDER THEY WILL BE BUST HOUSE. MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS ARE NOT AFFECTED AS MANY HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WERE, SO THEY STAY AT SCHOOL FOR A DAY. KARIN: THANK YOU, Lieutenant. STAY SAFE OUTSIDE. AS YOU HAVE HEARD, ONLY THE STUDENTS — THE HOOK UP STUDENTS ARE THOSE TO BE PICKED UP AT THE VINEYARD CHURCH. A BUS RIDER IS DELIVERED HOME. IF THEY DRIVE THEIR OWN CAR THEY ARE NOW FREE TO GO HOME. I KNOW MANY PARENTS OUT THERE ESPECIALLY THE PARENTS I’ve talked to CAN’T WAIT
