Sherwood Police Department investigate airsoft incident near High School (Photo) - 01/26/18

Today, around 3:15pm, The Sherwood Police Department responded to a call regarding a subject in his vehicle with a gun. It was initially reported that the subject was in the Sherwood High School parking lot. Although school was out for the day, the high school was put into lockout until the incident was resolved.

Upon our arrival at the high school, we were unable to locate the described vehicle or subject on school property. We received information during our investigation that the vehicle in question belonged to a Sherwood High School student. Around 3:30pm, we made contact with the student at his home.

We learned the gun in question was an air-soft gun and belonged to the student. Another student in the vehicle posted to social media with the subject in his car with the gun. The videos were recorded off campus around lunch time and not posted until the end of the school day.
There were no threats made in the social media posts. This investigation is ongoing.
