Hackettstown Lockdown

March 26, 2012 by staff 

Hackettstown Lockdown, All of the township’s schools and Centenary College were locked down and police suggested some residents stay in their homes during an investigation that later determined a potential threat was unfounded.

“We are investigating an incident that was called in near the high school, not in the high school, but near the high school,” said Detective Darren Tynan.

The Centenary College website said that a man had called the Warren County Communications Center about 9:45 a.m. and said he had an assault rifle in the woods beyond Hackettstown High School.

Centenary College Professor Christopher Linne said a siren at the college went off around 10 a.m. and students, staff and faculty who signed up for security alerts were told to stay in the classrooms or their dormitories. The alerts warning everyone to stay put are transmitted via social media about every 15 minutes, Linne said.

Linne, who had just started a class with 12 students, said police are investigating a report of a man with a rifle or a long firearm in fields or a wooded area behind Hackettstown High School on Warren Street, which is located less than a mile from the college campus.
