INCIDENT: Report of Person with a Gun on School Campus
LOCATION: Silverado High School, 14048 Cobalt Road, Victorville
On November 14, 2018, deputies from the Victorville Police Department responded to Silverado High School after receiving a report of a person with a gun on campus.
School officials enacted a lockdown at both Silverado High School and Cobalt Institute of Math and Science as deputies conducted a sweep of the Silverado campus. It was determined no legitimate threat existed. The cell phone used to make the initial report was located and determined to belong to a student. It appears the report was made as a prank and another student may have been involved.
The lockdown at both schools was lifted and classes resumed as normal. A thorough investigation is being conducted.
Anyone with information about this investigation is asked to contact the Victorville Police Department at (760) 241-2911 or Sheriff’s Dispatch at (760) 956-5001.
