Southwest High School said in a Facebook post Wednesday that the Fort Worth school went on secure status that afternoon due to an incident in the community.
Claudia Garibay, executive director of external and emergency communications for the Fort Worth Independent School District, said the outside doors were locked and no one was allowed to enter the school, but the school did not go into full lockdown. A full lockdown would involve securing students in their classrooms.
“There was never an active threat on campus,” Garibay said.
It is not clear what the incident was or who was involved. Garibay said the police are still investigating.
People were speculating on Facebook about the incident, and Garibay said a lot of inaccurate rumors are circulating on social media.
