Prank causes lockdown
A “prank” Tuesday morning caused several Navasota Independent School District campuses to be placed on a soft lockdown.
Around 9:50 a.m. Navasota Police dispatch received several calls about a male subject riding a bike and carrying an assault weapon. The subject was described as wearing dark clothing and traveling toward Brule Elementary school.
Navasota Police contacted NISD and had the district place the elementary schools on a soft lockdown. Police patrolled the area and located the adult who was in possession of an airsoft rifle with the orange safety marking painted over it. The subject stated he was playing a prank on a friend. No arrests were made.
At 10:13 a.m. NISD was given the all clear and classes continued as normal.
