Lodi High School student makes threat against another student, schools go into lockdown

LODI, Wis. - Lodi police said a student at Lodi High School made a threat of violence toward another student and left the school, prompting a districtwide lockdown Tuesday morning.

The threat was reportedly made by a 15-year-old boy around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Interim Lodi Police Chief Wayne Smith said before officers could respond, the suspect left school grounds. In an email to families in the district, Lodi School District Administrator Charles Pursell stated safety procedures dictated that the district lock down all the schools as a precaution.

Police were able to find and detain the teen shortly after, and the lockdown was lifted.

The teen was referred to juvenile authorities.
