Police Respond to Report of Armed Suspect at Del Norte High School

The Crescent City Police Department are investigating the source of a phone call stating armed subjects were at a graduation ceremony held at Del Norte High School on Wednesday.

From a CCPD Facebook post:

**UPDATE** at 1946hrs- The vehicle and subjects that were detained initially have been released as it was determined they were not involved. CCPD officers are still investigating the source of this phone call and I will update with further information as I have it.
DNSO dispatch received a phone call from a subject who stated they were armed with a rifle and a handgun at the graduation ceremony taking place at the high school. The subject also made threats via telephone, stating that they were going to start shooting. Several agencies quickly responded to the high school and escorted people out and searched for the subject. Currently a suspect vehicle with occupants is detained and an investigation is taking place. I will update as soon as I have further information. We have no reports of any injuries taking place during this incident.
Anyone with any information about this is urged to call into dispatch and report it. 707-464-4191.
