DeLand High School underwent a Code Red Lockdown Wednesday evening in response to an unspecified threat, prompting a swift and coordinated law enforcement response. The DeLand Police Department and Volusia County Sheriff's Office promptly dispatched officers to the scene to investigate and ensure the safety of students and staff.
The lockdown unfolded while students from Deland High School, Atlantic High School, and Spruce Creek High School were engaged in various sports activities on the campus, heightening the urgency to secure the premises and protect the students and faculty.
Law enforcement officers and highly trained K9 units carefully combed through the campus to assess the situation and determine the credibility of the reported threat. Fortunately, their thorough search revealed that the threat was unsubstantiated.
Following the all-clear, detectives from the respective law enforcement agencies will initiate a comprehensive investigation to ascertain the origins of this incident and gather any necessary evidence. The priority remains the safety and security of the educational institutions and their occupants.
