Police Situation Puts Schools On Lockdown

HARPER WOODS (WWJ) – A police situation in Harper Woods had schools on lockdown, Thursday afternoon, and residents on alert.

A witness at the scene told WWJ Newsradio 950 officers had streets blocked off around an approximately four-block residential portion of the city — between Beaconsfield, Peerless, Lochmoore and Fleetwood.

WWJ’s Violet Ikonomova spoke with Harper Woods resident Brenda McCain, shortly after 3 p.m.

“Police are everywhere; their guns are drawn; they’re all behind their vehicles,” McCain said. “Almost every police officer on the force is out there.”

Harper Woods school officials said the police situation came at an odd time — right when students were finishing school for the day.  All schools still in session were put on lockdown as a precaution.

There was no immediate details available about the police situation itself, although school officials said it had nothing to do with students.

No injuries were reported.
