For third time in three weeks, Dillard High faces lockdown amid threat reports

For the third time in three weeks, weapons investigations at Dillard High School led to a lockdown and police search on Friday of the Fort Lauderdale campus.

The school was secured at 12:03 p.m. and the lockdown was lifted 19 minutes later, Fort Lauderdale police spokeswoman Casey Liening said.

A 911 caller had claimed there was an armed person on campus, but gave the wrong school information and meant Lauderdale Lakes Middle school, Liening said.

As a precaution, officers searched Dillard anyway, Liening said.
