Suspicious person prompts Sunny Hills lockdown
October 26, 2010
School administrators put Sunny Hills Elementary School under lockdown for about 25 minutes Oct. 22 after students reported a suspicious person on school grounds.
Students reported the person — with what they believed to be a weapon — in a school parking lot at about 11:30 a.m., Principal Sarah White wrote in a message e-mailed to community members. The school lifted the lockdown at about 11:55 a.m.
The school was placed into lockdown, and the afternoon kindergarten class was re-routed to Pine Lake Middle School as Sammamish police investigated.
Chief Nate Elledge said police found no evidence of anything dangerous. Police believe the suspicious person to be a construction worker holding a nail gun across the street from the school.
