Providence Career and Technical Academy placed on lockdown after false alarm
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — The Providence Career and Technical Academy was placed on lockdown Thursday because of a potential security risk.
Police said they received a call for a report of an open door and unknown person inside the building.
When officers arrived to the school, the person in question inside the building was a student, police said.
Maj. David Lapatin told ABC 6 News that the student propped a back door open — most likely to pick up lunch — and came back through the same door. Initially, it was believed that a worker left that door open.
No injuries were reported.
No further information was immediately released.
