UPDATE: Three area schools put into lockdown Tuesday morning

UPDATE 12:56 p.m. 1/5/16: Three schools in the White Center area were put into lockdown Tuesday morning, Jan. 5 – Evergreen, Cascade Middle School and New Start.

Our initial report claimed that Cascade was the only school affected, but we have since confirmed that the incident actually happened at the Evergreen High campus, located at 830 SW 116th Street (map below).

Police say that someone reported “seeing a bulge” in someone’s waistband, which they thought was a gun.

“The suspect has been detained,” Sgt. Cindi West told The White Center Blog.

The witness did not actually see a gun, but the schools were put into lockdown as a precaution.

One parent posted this on her Facebook page:

“Cascade is on a full on lockdown kids are told to be super quiet …lets all pray please!! Im stressing hard right now”
