The Mason County Sheriff's office confirmed officers from multiple agencies were on scene at Hawkins Middle School in Washington and were clearing the school. The sheriff's office said it had not found any injuries. Authorities told responding officers to "slow down" in responding to the situation, though it remained unclear what that meant.

Police Confirm Active Shooter In Washington Middle School


UPDATE: 2:50 p.m. EDT – Hawkins Middle School in Washington remained on lockdown following an active shooter situation, Mason County Chief Deputy Ryan Spurling told local KIRO 7 News Wednesday. Police advised parents to “hold tight” until further information was available. Police said they had a heavy presence heading to the scene of the middle school in Mason County, Washington.


Still developing, not much has been released yet.


It was unclear if there were any injuries or deaths as a result of the shooting. Police said they were sending a response team to the middle school. Mason County is a little more than an hour outside of Seattle, Washington.


Hopefully no loss of life!

Reports of a student with a handgun at neighboring North Mason High School followed by reports of an active shooter in the area turned out to be unfounded after a massive law enforcement response involving 15 agencies. But both schools were locked down for more than three hours as the schools were searched and searched again, and parents waited anxiously at designated locations to be reunited with their children.

Either a hoax or a "misunderstanding." This happened early this morning PDT.

Gotcha, didn't find that one. Hopefully it was all a hoax though and there was no actual threat.

This all happened yesterday (April 26th). The issue was a kid at the school with a gun, but no active shooter. Infact the dates on the reports that are being shown both say the 26th (that the link in the OP and the link from the person below them)

this has nothing to do with the US being the number one arms manufacturer and seller. we actually need more guns to help curb gun violence. and if the former gets out of control, we can simply counter with more guns.
