Lockdown at Kamiak High School on Thursday after report of firearm

MUKILTEO, Wash., March 18, 2022 – Mukilteo Police Department responded to a report that a student brought a firearm at Kamiak High School. The incident took place the morning of March 17. After the suspect was interviewed by the School Resource Officer and school administration, it was determined that there was no immediate threat, and no firearm was found on the student nor on school premises. This is still an ongoing investigation.

The school was placed on lockdown for approximately 15 minutes. Some students thought a shelter-in-place drill was taking place until school staff shared details of the incident.

The Mukilteo Police Department confirmed that no other schools in the area were placed on lockdown.

Back in December last year, a 14-year-old was arrested and taken to the Denny Youth Center and booked on six felony counts in connection with a shooting threat made toward Voyager Middle School, Explorer Middle School, and Mariner High School.

On December 2, Bothell High School was closed due to a “threat of violence” and on the same day, a Ferndale student turned himself into police after bringing a BB gun onto Ferndale High School property.

Weapons on school grounds is a very serious safety concern that can result in a penalty of expulsion to criminal charges.
