We are hearing from sources that there is a tactical situation at Slinger Middle School. One source said it may involve a report of a student with a gun in a corridor, however authorities have not confirmed that information.
We contacted the Slinger Police Department and asked whether that was true. “I do not have any information I can give out to you,” the woman who answered the phone said. She said she wasn’t out at the response scene.
The Washington County Sheriff’s Department declined to give any information.
On the scanner, law enforcement officers talked about a place for family members and ambulances and referred to a “staging area.” At one point, they spoke about a “secondary staging” area. This is a developing story. Stay tuned for more information.
