Threat at high school in Warren prompts brief lock down

Police clear scene at Fitzgerald High School; no weapons found

WARREN, Mich. - A threat at a high school in Warren on Wednesday led to a brief lock down before students were dismissed.

Fitzgerald Public Schools superintendent Barbara VanSweden said a teacher and a student reported seeing the threat on Twitter and reported it to the principal. Officials put their lock down procedures into place -- which meant students and staff remained in classrooms until Warren police had cleared the building.

No weapon was found, VanSweden said.

Students were released at 1:45 p.m.

The school is located on Ryan Road near 9 Mile.
