Cumberland High briefly under lockdown
CUMBERLAND -- A lockdown followed by a pulled fire alarm have kept Cumberland High School busy today.
This morning, the school resource officer received information about an "incident" that was going to take place at the school, according to police.
At 11:15, the school was put on "lockdown," according to Lt. Michael Duda, which meant students had to stay in their classrooms.
The lockdown lasted until noon, Duda said, when the regular class schedule resumed. Meanwhile, police interviewed several students who were said to have been involved in the "incident." No details are available on what that means.
Things were heading back to normal, when, at about 1 p.m., the fire alarm was pulled.
Rescue and fire crews were responding to the school.
