Tiffin Police Investigate Alleged School Threat

4/3/19 – 6:46 A.M.

Calvert Elementary School in Tiffin went on a soft lockdown following an alleged threat Tuesday afternoon. The Advertiser-Tribune reports the incident happened around 1:15 p.m. A man walking by the school allegedly threatened to come back and shoot children at recess.

The Tiffin Police Department said they couldn’t verify if the man said that or not. The man lives in the neighborhood and walks by the school on his way to work. Investigators say children on the playground made rude comments to the man, which caused him to tell the teachers on playground duty to do their job and pay attention to what the children were doing.

After the man left, some children told teachers that he threatened to come back with a gun.
