On Tuesday morning, a school in Cromwell catering to children and young adults with developmental challenges was placed under lockdown following a false report of an active shooter, which authorities believe to be a “swatting” call.

Chief Frederick Sifodaskalakis of the Cromwell Police Department stated that officers responded to Ädelbrook school at 60 Hicksville Road around 8:30 a.m. after receiving the call.

The caller did not provide any additional information.

Upon arrival, officers swiftly entered the building to confer with administrators, and the school was placed on lockdown as a precaution.

Following a thorough search and investigation, authorities determined that the threat was not credible.

Authorities are continuing their investigation and urge anyone with information to reach out to Cromwell Detective Tolton at 860-635-2256.

Ädelbrook, as per its website, is an educational institution catering to children and young adults with autism spectrum disorders and various behavioral and developmental difficulties. The Cromwell-based school provides services for individuals aged 9 to 22, offering both extended school year and extended day programs.
