Schools shut down after man appears in camouflage
Just in case you were thinking about it, you might want to reconsider walking into a school at 6 a.m. dressed in camouflage, a flak jacket, and a holster.
When a 21-year-old airman from the Selfridge Air National Guard appeared at L'Anse Creuse High School in Harrison Twp. this morning, he caused several schools to shutdown.
From the Port Huron Times Herald:
The man was not carrying a gun. He left the school, encountered a counselor in the parking lot, and then left for his girlfriend's house in Harrison Township, where sheriff's deputies found him.
His visit set off a chain of events that led to the school closing before students were able to come in, said L'Anse Creuse Schools spokeswoman Kelly Allen.
"I think it was just poor judgment," said Wickersham, "going to the school dressed like that."
The district also closed the nearby Middle School Central and Graham Elementary School. As the high school students were to take the ACT today, they were moved to another building, said Allen. District officials have not said if the testing will go on as planned.
