JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- For the first time, police have explained what led to today's lockdown of two Westside schools and two bomb squad investigations.
According to Officer Melissa Bujeda, spokesperson for the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, a thorough investigation at Lake Shore Middle School revealed nothing suspicious.
"I was in school and all of a sudden, they got on the loud speaker and said nobody goes in and nobody goes out," said Lake Shore Middle student Gianni Jean-Lewis.
Lewis' mother, Ramano Froyze was one of several parents to go to the school to remove kids early.
"Especially with everything going on these days, I had to get him," said Froyze.
Bujeda said this morning's lockdown of both Lake Shore and nearby Bayview Elementary was initiated when a student's mother noticed something -- which was not disclosed -- at their home on Lannie Road and notified police. The home is about 30 miles away; police arrived around 10:45 a.m.
