The incident is still under investigation. Carroll said no arrests have been made and police were appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward. Call Crime Stoppers (217)423-TIPS (8477) or (217) 424-2734.
Police were called to the area at approximately 2 p.m. Thursday. The school administration made the decision to initiate a soft lockdown for the students.
In a soft lockdown, no one is allowed to leave or enter the building, but students are able to move freely inside the building. Lt. Ed Hurst of the Decatur Police Department said students had not faced any immediate threat or harm.
