Rita Cannan, High Desert School Lockdowns Lifted

Posted: Updated:

Authorities say they've lifted precautionary lockdowns at both Rita Cannan Elementary and High Desert Montessori schools in Reno.

The schools were put on a code yellow lockdown twice Tuesday afternoon as authorities searched for someone reported in the area with a possible holster. The second lockdown happened less than 20 minutes after the first precautionary code yellow was lifted after authorities initially couldn't find that person. But, once the first lockdown was lifted, a person matching the description was found walking several blocks away from the school.

They didn't know if the person was carrying any sort of weapon or simply had a holster with them so they locked down the schools as a precaution. But that second search for the person went unfounded. Reno Police also assisted in the search for that person.

The school, located at 2450 Cannan Street in Reno, first went into lockdown around 1:15pm Tuesday. Nearby High Desert Montessori was also on code yellow lockdown, but both lockdowns were lifted just before 2:30pm.
