NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas -- Canyon High School was placed on lockdown Friday morning after the school received what officials described as a threatening phone call.
Comal Independent School District officials said they did not believe any students were in imminent danger, but locked down the school as a safety precaution.
New Braunfels Police said the "threatening" phone call was placed by an anonymous caller who reported seeing a man with a gun on the campus. They are now trying to determine if the report is related to a robbery at a Security Service Federal Credit Union
that happened a short time after officers responded to the call.
The lockdown was lifted around 11:20 a.m. after officers checked all of the hallways and rooms at the school. Comal ISD officials said the campus was reopened but would continue under a modified lockdown, which allows for normal operations but limited access and an increased law enforcement officers presence at the school, for the remainder of the day.
