Weapon report prompts lockdown at Dillard High School; ex-student accused of Miramar school threat

Fort Lauderdale police searched Dillard High School Monday after a report of a possible weapon on campus that turned out to be unfounded. The school was locked down for part of the morning.

Lennise Marchant arrived at Dillard High after her daughter, Nala DeSousa, texted her about the police activity.

“She’s OK,” Marchant said about her daughter who is a senior. Marchant was able to call her child, who said she was in a classroom where the lights were turned off.

“The scene alone is nerve wracking,” Marchant said.
