Gallup High School was placed on lockdown at about 10:15 am Jan 27 due to a bomb threat. No one except police were allowed to enter, and many parents who came for a wrestling meet were stuck waiting outside the fenced in area.
Everyone inside school grounds was evacuated out to the area behind the building. Early reports suggest that the bomb threat was called in, as well as being written on the wall of a girls’ bathroom.
Police conducted a thorough search of the building, and no explosives were found. The lockdown ceased shortly before noon, and the wrestling meet began around noon as well.
