College of Idaho in Caldwell on lockdown due to ‘armed suspects’


PUBLISHED Mon, January 15, 2018 - 3:57pm EST


The College of Idaho in Caldwell was put on lockdown as a precaution after two armed persons were reported on or near the campus, school officials say. The lockdown was later lifted and there were no reports of injuries.

The incident happened at about 12:45 p.m. on Monday when two individuals were said to be "brandishing weapons" on or near campus at the JAAAC general parking lot. During the incident, they may have pointed a gun at another individual.

"The two suspects ran away on foot, but have not been located," the college said in an alert to students.

As a result, and out of an abundance of caution, the college was put on lockdown and students were urged to shelter in place. No shots were fired and there were no reports of any injuries as a result of the incident.

At 2:30 p.m., the College of Idaho said the lockdown had been lifted after consulting with the Caldwell Police Department. Other details about what happened were not available and, as of 3 p.m., no arrests had been made.

Anyone who witnessed what happened is asked to contact the Caldwell Police Department.
