Drake, Billinghurst Schools Put on Precautionary Lockdown

Posted: Updated:

A standoff in Sparks that put Drake Elementary school on code yellow lockdown has ended peacefully.

Just before 10:30am Wednesday police responded to a home on Galleron Way after neighbors reported hearing a gunshot from inside the home.

SWAT teams surrounded the home and negotiators contacted the people inside.

A woman came out first and told police her adult son was still inside.

After a few more hours police got him to come out peacefully.

Police searched the home and did not find any evidence a gun was fired.


Billinghurst Middle School in Reno was also locked down as a precaution today so police could search for a suspicious person who was reportedly nearby.

However, that turned out to be a child in a Halloween costume.

Again -- no one was hurt in either incident.
