DEVELOPING STORY – Stone Elementary School in Cumberland County has been placed under a soft lockdown. Sheriff Casey Cox told 1057 News minutes ago that the move is a precautionary measure only as authorities are searching the general area for a woman involved in an incident earlier today around Village Lane. The soft lockdown will be lifted once authorities are sure the female suspect they are looking for is not in that area. This is a developing story and more information will be released at a later time.
1057 News wants to remind our readers that a SOFT LOCKDOWN is used when a possible threat is identified in the surrounding area. This would involve any safety risk that is happening outside of the school. During a soft lockdown, all exterior doors are locked.
