Brief School Lockdown Lifted

KSAL Staff - April 21, 2015 10:42 am

A transient with a guitar prompts the brief lockdown of a Saline County School Tuesday morning.

According to the Saline County Sheriff’s Office, a woman driving on Interstate-70 pulled over to tell a Kansans Highway Patrol Trooper she thought she had seen a man with a long gun at the Halstead exit on I-70 just west of Salina.

Deputies contacted nearby Ell-Saline Elementary School and staff locked down the building.

The order was lifted a short time later after authorities determined the man had a guitar in a case and was not a threat.

The incident occurred at about 8:15am on Tuesday morning.

Ell-Saline Elementary School is located at 1757 N. Halstead Road.
