Springfield schools have been notified of a situation involving Springfield Police near 7th and Centennial, causing them to lock down several schools.
SPD says they got a complaint from a citizen who thought they saw a juvenile walking with what was believed to be a couple of rifles, one with an orange tip, which typically means the gun is not live fire.
The following schools are on lock down until further notice: Springfield High School, Hamlin Middle School, Gateway High School, A3, Brattain Early Learning Center, Brattain House, Two Rivers-Dos Rios Elementary and the administration building. Centennial was put on alert.
