Guam school quells 'threat of gun violence'
By Pacific Island Times News Staff
Saint Anthony Catholic School in Tamuning remained closed today as law enforcement officials continue to investigate a threat of violence which prompted a schoolwide lockdown yesterday.
"School personnel discovered a note on the premises which threatened gun violence at the Tamuning Catholic school," according to a press release from the Archdiocese of Agana.
It was not currently clear if a gun was found in the school.
"No actual incident of violence occurred. However, school administrators immediately initiated emergency protocols and contacted the Guam Police Department. Police did a sweep of the school and assisted staff as they coordinated the early pick-up of students by parents and guardians," the diocese said.
School administrators notified parents of classes continuing cancellation of classes.
