San Luis High School Lockdown


The San Luis High School was placed on lockdown Monday morning due to reports of a handgun being taken to school by a student.

SLPD received a call around 10:00 am with a caller stating that a subject had a possible handgun at school. When officers arrived they were able to locate a potential person of interest and later located a handgun. A short time later the lockdown was lifted and classes resumed back to normal.

At about 11:45 am SLPD officers who were still on scene investigating the first gun incident were notified of another possible handgun located on school grounds. SLPD officers located a second handgun and took possession of it. The second student was taken by SLPD officers and was questioned. This second incident was determined to not be related to the first incident.

Both cases are currently under investigation.

Numerous law enforcement agencies responded to assist on this call. Those agencies included United States Border Patrol, Somerton Police Department, Cocopah Police Department, United States Customs and Border Protection, Yuma County Sheriff’s Office, San Luis Fire Department and the Arizona Western Collage Police.

The case is currently under investigation and any witnesses are asked to contact School Resource Officer Zaragoza at 928-341-2420.
