Columbia City High School Locked Down After Report of Student With Gun

A report of a teen with a gun sent a South Seattle high school into lockdown Tuesday afternoon.

Police received a report from the Interagency High School—located in the 3500 block S. Ferdinand Street—just before 1 pm that a male student was carrying a gun through a campus hallway.

As students took shelter on campus and police arrived at the scene, the suspect—who is in his late teens 17 years old—fled the building and was arrested by officers.

Police have not received any reports of gunfire or injuries during the incident, and have recovered a firearm at the scene.

We’ll post additional details as they become available.

Update 1/22: Officers booked the 17-year-old suspect into the King County Service Center for unlawful possession of a firearm.
