Large umbrella triggers lockdown at Issaquah schools

ISSAQUAH, Wash. -- Three schools in Issaquah were briefly in lockdown Monday afternoon after someone reported what appeared to be a man with a long-rifle walking onto the campus of Issaquah High School.

Students and faculty at the high school, along with nearby Clark Elementary and Issaquah Middle School were told to stay in their classrooms as a precaution while police searched the campus.

A short time later, investigators located the man in question and it turned out he was a school district employee carrying a large umbrella, Issaquah police said.
