SPOONER - Law Enforcement advised the Spooner Area School District (SASD) today to go on a lockdown while they searched for a suspect in the community.

SASD Superintendent Dr. David Aslyn said that he was contacted by the Sheriff’s Office requesting to go into a lockdown but was not given a reason as to why.

An automated call was sent from SASD to parents at 1:23p advising that the school was in a lockdown, and at 2:01p another call was placed stating the school lockdown was lifted.

Shortly-there-after, the Spooner Police Department issued the following statement:

On the afternoon of 02-24-2020, officers responded to a report of a domestic distrubance, on Lincoln St.

When officers arrived, the male suspect fled from a second floor balcony, from officers. It was determined that the male had several active warrants for his arrest.

The suspect is a white male, last seen wearing blue shorts, white t-shirt.

Due to the close proximity to the Spooner Middle School, police contacted the school district and requested a district lock down.

Officers have attempted to locate the suspect, but at this time have been unsuccessful.

The School district has been contacted and advised that the lock down could be lifted.
