Bullet found on floor at Panther Valley Junior Senior High

SUMMIT HILL, Pa. - The Panther Valley School District conducted regularly planned Red Alert lockdown drills Monday morning at all three of its buildings. 

However, after the successful lockdowns ended, a staff member found a bullet on the cafeteria floor at the junior senior high school

Police were notified at the time and multiple units responded to the scene. The school was on lockdown until shortly before 2 p.m. as officials swept the school. 

The investigation is set to continue to determine the source of the .45 caliber bullet. 

The district said in a statement it apologizes for any inconveniences its staff and students may have experienced, but this could not have been avoided.
