Police received a report March 14 about a woman holding two rifles walking down Newport Way near Issaquah Valley Elementary School.
In response, the school issued a lockdown at about 12:10 p.m., until authorities investigated.
Cmdr. Stan Conrad, with the Issaquah Police Department, said an officer was dispatched to the area but failed to find anyone matching the woman’s description. This afternoon, a sergeant was in the process of interviewing the individual who alerted police.
The school lifted the lockdown a half-hour later, at about 12:40 p.m.
