Q13 Fox News


AUBURN — The Green River Community Community College was put on lockdown Monday after a student made a veiled threat to a faculty member.

A large police presence was seen on the campus in the 1200 block of SE 320th Street in Auburn around 10:50 a.m.

Police sources said a student made a threat to a faculty member, and police were called to the school.  No weapons were seen and the student is no longer on the campus, sources said.

Officers checked the college following the threat.

Some in the area tweeted about the event around 10:50 a.m. Monday, posting pictures of a lockdown message sent to students.

The threat follows a shooting event at a high school in Marysville Friday that left three students dead. This was the second police call to an area school Monday, as a Molotov cocktail was discovered at a Seattle high school.
