Maple Street standoff affects local schools


Students in some Walla Walla Public Schools were temporarily impacted by the standoff on Maple Street. Lincoln High School and Garrison Middle School, both in the area of the standoff, were placed on temporarily lockdown until police took control of the scene.

Students riding school buses near the scence of the standoff were held at their schools for pick-up by parents. Students who walk home near the area were redirected away from the scene by district staff who were near the police activity to alert students.

An all-clear was given and the precautions lifted by 3 p.m.
