Suspicious activity report causes school lockdowns
By Staff Reports
What appeared to be suspicious activity at a Williamson County School parking lot today turned out to be a student with his ROTC practice drill rifle trying to get to practice drills on time.
Fairview Elementary, Middle and High School campuses were temporarily locked down this afternoon after Williamson County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Ryan Rogers, who is also the Fairview Middle School SRO, received word that someone got out of a car in the school parking lot carrying what looked like a long object, possibly a gun, covered with camouflage material. The person was then seen walking on campus between Fairview Middle and Fairview High.
WCSO deputies and officers from the Fairview Police Department and the Tennessee Highway Patrol quickly responded to Sgt. Rogers’ call for assistance.
The lockdowns were lifted and staff and students were allowed to leave the schools after it was determined that the reported suspicious activity was a Fairview High School ROTC student rushing to get to his practice drills.
