Everyone is safe, but students are reportedly heading home early, shaken by this morning’s campus-wide hard lockdown at Barrington High School. The school was on lockdown for approximately 45 minutes today after a faculty member reported seeing a student with a handgun in a restroom. The weapon was immediately reported to authorities and the school promptly went into a campus-wide hard lockdown, with all students and staff safely secured in their respective rooms.

Barrington police converged on the campus in less than one-minute and swiftly searched the building, according to a joint statement from the Barrington 220 School District and the Barrington Police Department. The student was located, with an unloaded handgun and ammunition in a backpack.

The student was quickly apprehended, questioned to ensure there were no accomplices, and transported off campus in police custody. The entire incident lasted less than one hour, before students and staff were allowed to return to their normal activities.

All students are safe, everyone is accounted for, and police remain on site to assist with school personnel. “We want to commend all members of the high school community for immediately responding to the lockdown and following all security protocols,” according to the joint statement. “As a result, the student was identified and apprehended and the safety of everyone was verified.”

More details will be communicated as appropriate and when further information is known. Follow the latest updates from the school district at Facebook.com/Barrington220.
