Thurs. 8:20 pm: Threat leads to lockdown at two schools

WARREN TOWNSHIP – An active duty Army soldier’s mental health crisis led to a lockdown at two area schools where her children attend classes, according to Warren Township police Chief Don Bishop.

The woman, who has a child in the Labrae school system and one in the James A. Garfield school system in Garrettsville, is being treated at Trumbull Memorial Hospital, Bishop said. The 2 p.m. lockdown at the LaBrae School Complex canceled Thursday’s at-home girls basketball game against Campbell, according to Superintendent A.J. Calderone.

Authorities became involved when the woman’s commanding officer called Bishop after she made suicidal comments and talked about going to get her children, Bishop said.
