Several police officers were sent to the scene to perform their investigations. No casualties have been confirmed or identified as of the publication of this report. This is what Jones College Prep said in a statement: Our first goal is ensuring the safety of both our personnel and kids.
We are emailing you to inform you that our school recently received an anonymous phone call. We quickly contacted the Office of Safety and Security after the caller made threatening remarks, and they in turn alerted the Chicago Police Department.
We also immediately called a soft lockdown to ensure the safety of our students and staff. An investigation is underway with CPD to assess the situation. We will remain on soft lockdown until we receive an all-clear.
Please be aware that this means that no one is currently allowed to enter or leave our school building. We will send you another communication as soon as we have an update.
