On 09/30/22, Officers with the SAPD were dispatched to Central High School in reference to a hoax call indicating that shots had been fired on the Central High School campus. Central High School administration along with SAPD placed the campus on lockdown for the safety of the students.
Multiple officers and other law enforcement agencies quickly responded to Central and began to secure both the interior and exterior of the school.
The SAPD and Central staff worked in conjunction with each other to ensure everyone’s safety. The lockdown was lifted and students were released following no potential threat.
Detectives with SAPD’s Criminal Investigation Division arrived on scene to assist and are currently investigating the incident.
SAPD received information that the same caller for the Central High School incident had also made the same threat to a school in Colorado City and in Abilene.
The SAPD would like to clarify that there was not a shooting at the school and that there are no injuries associated with this incident.
The SAPD and SAISD continues to highly encourage anyone with information regarding possible threats to our schools and students to contact the Police Department directly with their concerns so we can address them accordingly.
Further information will be released if it becomes available.
