SAVANNAH, MO. (2010-2-26) Several area Missouri schools locked down yesterday based on an alert but it turns out there was no threat locally.
The State's department of public safety in Jefferson City sent out an alert just before noon through the "Missouri Alert Network" to schools of a wanted man carrying a gun. The message reportedly didn't contain any location, but some schools getting the alert acted. Savannah R-3 superintendent Donald Lawrence says the alert was vague enough, his district decided to err on the side of caution. After about an hour and 10 minutes a second alert giving the "All Clear" was sent to schools in the State and the incident was over. Savannah police say the suspect wasn't even in the State of Missouri.
