Parents Reuniting with Frenship High Students After SWAT, Report of Gun on Campus

LUBBOCK, TX - Just after noon Friday, a spokesman for Frenship High School said the school was on lockdown.  A SWAT team responded to the location. 

Just after 2:30 p.m., Frenship said, “Currently, students are moving to a safe zone, and the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office has given permission to be reunited with their parents.”

During the incident, officers on scene told our reporters that it was reported a man in a ski mask entered the building. 

Also during the incident Frenship said, “Just before noon, Frenship ISD received a report of a gun sighted in the building. At this time, it is only a report. Nothing is confirmed. 911 was called and both FHS and the 9th Grade Center were put on high level lock down.”

Just after 1:00 pm, our reporters saw students being escorted out of the building.  At first they were not allowed to meet with parents.  That changed with Frenship’s announcement at 2:30. 

Lubbock Police, Frenship Police, Wolfforth Police, DPS and the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office responded.  Police emphasized that no shots were fired and there were no reports of injuries.
