All-clear given at Mohawk High School lifted after reports of shots fired

Presently, The Wyandot County Sheriff Deputies and first responders are on the scene out of an abundance of caution.



UPDATE: The Wyandot Co. Sheriff’s Office says there was “no credible threat” found at Mohawk Local School. There were no injuries reported, and the building was given the all-clear. The superintendent sent out an alert, asking parents not to go to the school, as students are not permitted to leave. School officials will continue updating families through the day.

Following a report of gunshots, the Mohawk Junior and Senior High School was placed under lockdown on Monday.

A dispatcher at the Wyandot County Sheriff’s Office confirmed receiving reports of “possible shots fired” at the school in Sycamore, prompting a “Level 3 Lockdown” response.

First responders thoroughly searched the premises and subsequently issued an “all-clear” after establishing that there was no valid threat.

As of the latest update, the school had not yet lifted the lockdown.

Deputies and additional law enforcement personnel continue to be present at the scene as a precautionary measure.

Mohawk schools give an update regarding the emergency response at the school.

All students, faculty, and staff are SAFE and ACCOUNTED for by our level 3 lockdown. We ask that parents please do not show up at the building, as students are not permitted to leave at the present time. We have all first responders on the scene conducting a safety sweep of the building and the campus.

This is a developing story that will be updated when more information is available.
