Lockdown at four Edmonds schools after hoax call

Four schools in Edmonds went into lockdown Tuesday after what the school district calls a hoax.

The district says a man called 911 to report a disturbance at Edmonds Woodway High School around 11:30 a.m. Police arrived minutes later and determined there was no problem.

Earlier reports said there was a gunman in the area of the high school.

KIRO TV reported College Place Middle School, College Place Elementary School and Chase Lake Elementary, were locked down.

The police are trying to track down the caller.
