Highland Park HS locked down for bullets

Posted: Updated:

For the second day in a row police searched the Highland Park High School campus, this time because .22 caliber bullets were found in a boy's bathroom.

A Highland Park Independent School District spokesman said someone came into the office at about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday to report finding the ammo in the bathroom.

The school was placed on lockdown for about two hours and then students were dismissed for the day.

Police searched the campus and questioned a group of several students who were seen on surveillance video in the area where the bullets were found just before they were reported.

This is the fifth scare for the school in recent months.

On Tuesday students were dismissed at 11 a.m. because of a threatening note found in a bathroom. Three other similar notes have been found.

While some student haven't been taking the threats all that seriously, parents are.

"It's no fun dropping off your kid at a school where there's been sort of constant threats for the past six to eight weeks," said Jesse Shelmire.

The district said the bullets weren't found in the same bathroom as the threatening notes and they didn't come with a letter.
