A school in northeastern Nebraska had been under lock down today as authorities investigated a death on school property.
Little information has been released by the Wakefield Community Schools or the Dixon County Sheriff’s Office, but reports have surfaced that a 20-year-old former student has died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
An official confirmation of that has not been released.
The K-12 school is located in Wakefield, a community of about 1,400, not far from Sioux City, Iowa.
School officials say a teacher spotted a suspicious vehicle near the soccer field this morning at approximately 10:30. Officials report Wakefield students and staff are not in danger.
