Tacoma’s Lincoln High locked down while police search for intruder

Tacoma police searched Lincoln High School today after students reported seeing a man who’d been banned from campus Thursday on school grounds this morning.

The school was locked down during the search.

TNT reporter Debbie Cafazzo talked to a school district official who told her a non-student had been on campus Thursday and was asked by school officials to leave the property.

On Friday, Lincoln students thought they saw the intruder back at school. Tacoma police searched the school and reviewed surveillance video of the campus, but did not see him.

The lockdown was lifted after police completed their work.

TPD spokesman Mark Fulghum had this to say:
A guy that was arrested yesterday (across the street from the school) for having a gun on him showed up in the school today.  He is not a student.  The school was locked down while TPD searched the school for him.  He was not located and school was released from the lockdown.
