JACKSON, Mich. — A school and administration building in Jackson is no longer on lockdown.

It was lifted as of 9:19 .am. according to a post from Jackson Public Schools.

Earlier Kriss Giannetti, school district spokeswoman for Jackson Public Schools, told Fox 47 that the Jackson Police Department advised Jackson Public School officials to put the high school and administration buildings on lockdown as of 8:05 a.m. on Tuesday.

This was because of a shooting that occurred on Third Street near Michigan Avenue.

“As a precaution, police put our (high school) building and (administration) on lockdown,” Giannetti said. “We’re under lock down and we’re waiting to hear from police.”

On Monday, September 16, at 11:30 p.m., deputies from Jackson County Sheriff's Office were dispatched to South Concord Street for threats made concerning Concord High School students through social media.

The four students are 15 years old and are currently lodged at the Jackson County Youth Center pending charges for Terroristic Threats.

Giannetti said parents should have been notified by text and email messages once the lockdown for both buildings was lifted.

Fox 47 reached out to the Jackson Police Department but have not heard back.

For further information, please contact Sheriff Steve Rand at 517-768-7924.
