Man Runs from Hospital into High School

School Lockdown

Bismarck, ND – There was a scare at Bismarck High School Wednesday that triggered a lockdown or shelter-in-place.

Bismarck Police say, around 1 p.m. a man who was at one of the hospitals did not want to be admitted so he ran away. He ran to BHS. That triggered the lockdown or shelter-in-place. But it didn’t last long.

When officials looked at camera footage, it showed the man ran straight through the school and ran out a different door. Police found him a little later. Police say the man is not under arrest and did not commit a crime.

BPS Community Relations Secretary Arianne Lawson said,

“Shortly after 1 pm, a brief precautionary locking of classrooms at Bismarck High was conducted due to a report of a trespasser in the building. No known threat was made to students or staff. A lockdown was initiated while administration and law enforcement did a sweep of the building and neighborhood. Will-Moore was also in a brief precautionary locking of classrooms until the trespasser was found. The individual was found by law enforcement in the neighborhood NW of BHS. This issue is resolved.”
