Lockdown at Radnor H.S. After Bullet Found in Hallway

A 9mm bullet found at Radnor High School led to a lockdown at the school this afternoon. No direct threats have been reported to the school.

Radnor High School was placed on lockdown at 12:30 p.m. today after a bullet was found on campus, a report on the school’s website said. The lockdown was categorized “level 2,” which means there was no direct threat to students.

The school said no danger to teachers or students has been found. K9 units were called in to sweep the school after a 9mm bullet was found in a hallway sometime today.

After the bullet was found, Radnor cops and K9 units did a sweep of both the inside and the outside of the school. Per a parent of a student at Radnor, the school did not contact parents about the lockdown via email or phone communications. She learned of it on the news; the school posted a tweet about the lockdown and a message on its website about an hour after the news broke.

“Due to the discovery of a single round of ammunition in an RHS hallway on the morning of Dec. 7, the school entered a Level 2 Lockdown around 12:30 p.m. to allow police officers and trained police canines to perform a full sweep the building,” a message posted on the Radnor website read. “The police conducted an exterior check shortly after the item was found. At this time, there has been no threat or danger discovered and all students and staff members are safe. We are working on providing more information as soon as possible.”

Students were on lockdown for several hours, but per the district all district students were eventually dismissed on time.
