Lewiston High School & Martel Elementary Locked Down Due to Gun Threat

The Lewiston Sun Journal is reporting that a lockdown has been lifted around 1pm at Lewiston High School and Martel Elementary School, after police searched for a firearm theft suspect.

The newspaper reports that Police put the schools on lockdown while they were investigating a firearm theft nearby, citing safety as a concern.
