WATERBURY, CT   – Two schools in Waterbury were locked down on Thursday following a report of a possible weapon on one of the campuses.

The mode was downgraded to “shelter-in-place” around 12:30 p.m., according to Waterbury Public Schools.

Waterbury Public Schools told Channel 3 that Crosby High School was where the incident happened. The district said Michael Wallace Middle School was also locked down because of its proximity to the high school.

“The Waterbury Police Department confirmed no weapon was found,” the district said in a statement to the media. “All students and staff are safe.”

However, police were still investigating.

Two parents were arrested after they trespassed into the school during the lockdown, Waterbury police said.
