Threat puts Fla. county schools on lockdown
Happening right now. Just think how defenseless they must feel with no weapons to protect themselves. There is a wolf on the loose and now the sheep are in danger.
PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. – Schools in Florida's second-largest county were on lockdown Wednesday after police said an unidentified woman called a radio station and said her husband might go to a school and start shooting.
Pembroke Pines Police Capt. Daniel Rakofsky said an earlier e-mail to the radio station, maybe from the man in question, said "something big was going to happen," possibly at a post office or a school.
Schools in Pembroke Pines, a suburb of Fort Lauderdale, were initially placed on lockdown as a precaution. The lockdown was then extended to all 300 Broward County schools. The county has nearly 257,000 students.
Neither the man nor the woman have been identified, though police said they were following several leads.
