15-Year-Old Girl Detained In Har-Ber Lockdown After Gun Tip

Several Springdale Har-Ber High School students were detained by police for questioning after a tip about a student gunman led to a lockdown at the school, said Lt. Derek Hudson with the Springdale Police Department.

As first reported by 5NEWS, a girl was suspected of bringing a gun to school, prompting the lockdown. Police later confirmed a 15-year-old girl was taken in for additional questioning following the investigation at the school.

Police responded to the school on Thursday afternoon at about 2 p.m. after receiving two tips that there was a student on campus with a gun, Hudson said. Responding officers searched the area, but did not initially find a gun, he said.

The detained students were not placed under arrest, just held for questioning, Hudson said. No arrests have yet been made.

The school district lifted the lockdown at 3 p.m., but the school was still “on alert,” meaning students were still in the classrooms as police continued investigating mid-afternoon, Schaeffer said.

“There is no immediate threat. No one is in danger,” he said.

    Two female students each brought a gun to school. During the day one fired shots in the air. One girl was detained and the other has not yet be found. One gun has been recovered. My son attends Harbor and said at no point to his knowledge was any shot at nor were any of the students threatened.

      I go to Har-Ber as well. There were no shots fired, and seemingly no immediate danger to students other than the fact that we all had to sit in class. There were multiple rumors going around as to what was going on. And that was all that happened from what I saw.
