Jamestown schools, following a lockdown earlier, will dismiss students today as normal, school officials announced.
The full statement reads: “The lockdown in all Jamestown Public Schools established earlier today will be lifted for dismissal. While the homicide suspect has not yet been apprehended by the Jamestown Police Department, we believe he is most interested in hiding, so poses little danger to our students. Our interest is in getting our students from the safety of our schools to the safety of their homes as quickly and efficiently as possible.”
“Today’s dismissal will occur at the usual times and follow our regular protocols. That said, know that if you wish to pick up your child from school you may do so, but will need to be patient as the schools verify the identity of those making an emergency pick up. Students are being allowed to call home to see if any special arrangements might be needed. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this temporary emergency.”
Swanson added that the shooting doesn’t appear to be a random act. He declined to confirm whether the shooting was a homicide.
