A student at Glenwood Middle School found an empty shell casing in a hallway Monday afternoon, prompting a full search of the building and adjacent property. The discovery came three days after the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. Glenwood Middle School Principal Kerry Cox says the the school was put on what is termed “soft lockdown”. That resulted in lockers being searched and students kept after school for a few minutes. Local law enforcement discovered no weapons or other ammunition on the middle school campus. An email from Cox to parents says students and staff followed procedures effectively during the event and classes continued as planned.
