Muskego Police have confirmed that the suspect who was the center of a school lockdown at Muskego High School earlier on Tuesday is a current student who is now in protective custody.
Muskego High School had been put on lockdown after police received a "credible threat" of violence, according to Patch's media partners, WISN 12 News.
According to Capt. John La Tour, the tip came from a parent concerned for their student's whereabouts and welfare, and that at no time were students in the school in danger. The student was located at 6:12 p.m. and a weapon was recovered, according to La Tour.
The school was locked down for up to an hour for what was determined to be a "credible threat of a situation that could become violent" although the suspect never made it inside the school. Students were then dismissed early due to the weather conditions.
