UPDATE:   A person had an umbrella, and someone thought it was a gun.

So they treated the scene as an active shooter scene.

The situation is wrapping up. Everyone is SAFE.

Police have reviewed the cameras and also cleared the school several times. Situation is clear and everyone is safe.  They treated this as an active shooter scene, to be safe.


The school released this:

Our school has been secured by the Rockford law enforcement agencies due to a report they received. There are no reported injuries from any student or staff member. Every student has been accounted for and has been transported to a secure location. At this time we are cooperating with law enforcement to ensure a safe and proper procedure.

Parents, we will keep you posted as to when we will dismiss

 


UPDATE from the police:  Berean Baptist Christian School has been evacuated after reports of a possible armed suspect, according to the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office.  Treating the scene as an active shooter scene.

No injuries,  police are accounting for all the students right now. And they are bringing the students over at Anna Page School, where they are releasing the students to the parents there.


Update from a source:  “A  woman  in the parking lot around pick up time thought she saw a man go in the building with a rifle. It was a person with an umbrella with a strap on it, and after that a man ran in the building with a hammer apparently to catch the man with the rifle that was never there. Everyone is safe. The police are doing a second sweep of the school just to be sure. But false alarm. Better to be safe than sorry. And the school is always locked no matter what time it is and everyone has to be buzzed in so they would have recognized the parent with the umbrella coming in to pick up their child.”
