Shots Fired Near Pinon Hills Elementary School Prompts Officials To Lock Down Campus – Police Helicopters Search Area

Pinon Hills Elementary School

(Best Syndication) Teachers heard gunshots at the Pinon Hills Elementary School prompting the administration to call all students into their classes and the cafeteria. Some of the students were outside playing while others were already in class when the “lock-down’ occurred. All of the students had to remain indoors until police deemed it safe to exit.

The shots came from the southwest direction, but school officials were not certain how far away the gunman was. The gunshots were heard around 2:05pm. One of the instructors, Mr. Thatcher, said that there were 2 police helicopters in the air, 2 or 3 school police, and 4 sheriffs on scene.

One administrator told me that the police arrived within minutes and were on campus by 2:15pm. The police began searching the surrounding area. There were no reports of empty shell casings found. Approximately 35 minutes later, the police allowed parents to pick-up their students and for others to board the buses to go home.

The school principal, Mr. Premo said the “response time from law enforcement was tremendous.” In an automated telephone call, Mr. Premo said that the behavior of the students was outstanding and that school will resume tomorrow (Friday).
