2 Shoreview schools briefly locked down

As a precaution in response to an individual fleeing from deputies in the Shoreview area, the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office put Island Lake Elementary and St. Odelia School on lockdown the morning of Oct. 4. 

The sheriff’s office made the announcement shortly before 9 a.m. via Twitter. Deputies were after an individual who fled a car accident in the area of Lexington Avenue and County Road E. Island Lake and St. Odelia’s, both a few blocks over on Victoria Street, were “locked-down as a precaution,” said the sheriff’s office.

An update came at 10:55 a.m., when the sheriff’s office tweeted that the lockdown had been lifted and the incident resolved. 

“There is no threat to public safety,” the RCSO said.
