Shotgun scare triggers school lockdown

SINCLAIRVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) – A brief lockdown has been lifted at Cassadaga Valley High School in Chautauqua County.

Interim Superintendent Thomas Schmidt tells News 4 the district put a lockdown in place for about a half hour Wednesday morning after someone spotted shotguns in a car outside the high school.

Two students had gone turkey hunting before school began and left their shotguns in the back of a car. No one was ever in any danger, Schmidt says, and the lockdown was put in place only as a precaution.

Administrators will take the appropriate disciplinary action against the students.
