Floyd Central on precautionary lockdown
The reason the heightened level of security went in place.
NEW ALBANY, In. (WDRB) -- Floyd Central High School is on lockdown because of a security threat.
The New Albany Floyd County Schools superintendent's office says the lockdown is not because of a threat inside the school.
Floyd County dispatchers say a suspect ran from a traffic stop nearby, and the school was put on lockdown as a precaution. Police don't believe the suspect is armed or violent.
The district office tells WDRB they will remain on an "external lockdown," which means adults are at each door. But students are moving freely in the building, and they can get in and out of the building.
