CROWLEY, Texas -

After a police search that turned up nothing, Crowley ISD lifted the lockdown on three campuses Wednesday afternoon.

Crowley High School, the Crowley 9th Grade Campus, and the Bill R. Johnson CTE Center were briefly under "code red."

According to a district spokesperson, the police were checking on an unspecified threat. Officers swept the schools but found nothing.

The following notice was posted on the district's website around lunchtime:

Crowley ISD has placed three campuses on lockdown as a precautionary measure at the request of Crowley Police who are investigating reports of a potential security threat. At this time, no threats have been confirmed and this is a precautionary measure.

Extra police officers are patrolling the campuses and the District Safety Team has responded. Parents are asked to refrain from coming to the schools at this time. In the event of an emergency, information will be posted here on this website, CISD's Facebook page and the phone call-out system.

This is just the latest in a series of threats and scares at Dallas-Fort Worth area schools following last week's deadly shootings in Newtown, CT.
