Report of men with guns sends Laconia schools into lockdown

LACONIA - A report of two men, one possibly carrying a rifle, Tuesday afternoon on Dewey Street, adjacent to Laconia High School, prompted a lockdown of the high school and the nearby Woodland Heights Elementary School.

Laconia Police and a New Hampshire State Police K-9 unit responded to the report for a search of the area, but no trace of the men was found.

Laconia Police Capt. Matt Canfield said the lockdown followed the report of the sighting by a school administrator at 1:18 p.m. He said the lockdown ended shortly after the normal dismissal time for the schools.

Canfield said the men were described as white, one wearing a black T-shirt and the other wearing a white sweatshirt with red lettering.

The investigation is continuing and anyone with information concerning the incident, or who saw the two men, is asked to contact the Laconia Police at 524-5252 or Laconia Crimeline at 527-1717.
