Shotgun used to break into Idaho school
HAILEY, Idaho (AP) -- Authorities delayed the opening of Wood River High School in Hailey Friday morning after someone used a shotgun to break into the building overnight.
Blaine County School District spokeswoman Heather Crocker said someone fired a shotgun through a glass door on the north side of the school to gain access. She said they were in the building for just over a minute, pulled the fire alarm and left.
District officials were notified that an alarm was activated at the school at about 1:30 a.m.
“The entire high school was inspected by the police and cleared for occupancy. The break-in was considered unusual because a weapon was used as a means to enter the building. Because the safety and security of all our students and staff is our priority, there will be an increased police presence at schools throughout the day,” according to a statement posted on the school’s website.
The break-in is still under investigation.
