Lubbock State School briefly on lockdown after threat report

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Lubbock State Supported Living Center, formerly the Lubbock State School, is monitoring their campus after an employee allegedly threatened some other employees Friday.

State of Texas Press Officer Cecilia Fedorov says the employee was in the food service area around 11:30 a.m.

"The employee was overheard making threats and making statements that he had a gun. Nobody ever saw a gun. The employee who was making the threat never produced a gun. However, our staff took the threats seriously," Fedorov said.

The campus was locked down while police were on the property.

Fedorov says the employee left the facility. Police located him at his residence.

The Living Center is investigating the incident and deciding what actions will be taken. Fedorov says the employee has been advised to not go to the campus.

No charges have been filed but police are still investigating.
