No charges are expected in Monday's Triton Central schools lockdown

The Triton Central schools campus was under a lockdown for a portion of the school day on Monday.


The Shelby County Sheriff's Department says no charges are expected in the reported threat that led to the situation.  It's not believed to be a school threat but messages between two juveniles with problems that led to the school district taking action and calling on law enforcement to look into the issue. 


One of the students attends Triton Central, the other does not.


The school corporation sent the following message on Monday to alert people to the situation:


NWCSD is currently operating in a Lock-in profile in collaboration with local law enforcement’s investigation into an off-campus situation involving students from another school corporation.

Campus is currently closed to visitors.
