and when Hancock County Deputies, followed by Dallas City, Hamilton and Illinois State Police arrived, they locked down the building & grounds…students & staff…and conducted a search. A short time later, authorities determined the school was safe and that no one had been in any danger throughout the process, which ended shortly after 11 am.
