Police activity in Hillyard forces four schools into temporary modified lockdown

Police activity on Cook Street forced four Spokane Public Schools to go into a modified lockdown on Tuesday morning.

Spokane Public Schools Spokesman Brian Coddington said Regal Elementary, Shaw Middle School, NEWTech and On Track Academy were in modified lockdown for about 30 minutes.

Modified lockdown means all doors to the building were locked, but school operated as normal inside.
