UPDATE as of 12:15 p.m.: PLU spokesman Greg Brewis reports that the man was not located and the university is now in a lockdown.

UPDATED as of 11:47 a.m.

Pierce County sheriff’s deputies are talking to a man holed up in a house in Parkland. The man was involved in a domestic incident and fired off a gunshot, sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said.

No one has been injured.

“We are talking to him,” Troyer said.

The incident is about seven blocks from the Pacific Lutheran University campus. The campus is in contact with law enforcement but not in a lockdown, a spokesman said.

We will update this post when more information becomes available.

    This is so frusterating. I worry about our daughter at WHS across from PLU on lockdown. It has been 45 minutes since the story broke and no updates.

  3. I used to go to WHS but now I’m in online schooling, so thankfully I’m not there. People keep complaining about having to pee, lolol. It’s a scary situation, but people are over exaggerating it, by making rumors about how there’s fugitives with shotguns on campus, etc, on Fb and such.

  4. Well, looks like everything is better, lol. I just heard the intercom at Keithley, saying the lockdown was over. c:
    Parents kept showing up at the school trying to get their kids out, how dumbbb. A lockdown means nobody in OR out. -____-

    WHS is off lockdown. Confusing that PLU is now on lockdown? Is the guy still out there or not?

    PLU’s lock down was cancelled at 12:29 pm. They said the suspect was confirmed to be out of the area.
