Threats against Red Wing Public Schools prompted the district to put all schools on lockdown Wednesday.
The Red Wing Republican Eagle reports a senior at Tower View Alternative Learning Center received a call Tuesday night from an unknown phone number. The girl answered, police say, and the person on the other end told her, "Your school is next."
The newspaper says the threat alluded to a school shooting. Red Wing Police are working with the county attorney to obtain a subpoena for phone records.
According to a message on the district's website, all external doors at the district's schools will be locked for the day as a precautionary measure and students will remain inside.
KARE 11 reports concerns were heightened when a student found .22 Long Rifle rounds on a school bus Wednesday morning. A student later came forward and told police the gun shells were in his pocket after coyote hunting and must have fallen out.
The district determined the incident was unrelated to the phone threat and did not pose any danger to students.
