Around 10:30am, Friday, November 17, a student called into the Northeast Lakeview College campus police dispatch reporting an individual on campus with a gun. Officials with Northeast Lakeview College police department immediately placed the campus on lockdown and dispatched officers to the scene.
Upon arrival, police officers learned the individual was a member of the Northeast Lakeview College police force who was not wearing the traditional blue uniform. The individual in question was wearing his badge and was on campus for a meeting.
“Officials with the college were able to resolve this situation quickly,” said Kristi Wyatt, Northeast College Campus liaison. “This was a great test of our emergency plan. All parts of the plan worked the way we expected. This was also a time to remind us that all students, faculty, and members of the Alamo College family need to have updated contact information on file.”
