A robbery at Edmonds Pharmacy forced the lockdown of three nearby schools this morning.
Officials locked down Edmonds-Woodway High School and College Place Middle and Elementary schools at about 11:15 a.m. while police searched for the suspect. Edmonds-Woodway is directly across 212th Street SW from Edmonds Pharmacy.
The lockdown was lifted about 30 minutes later.
“During the lockdown, our students behaved well, stayed calm, and wanted to share with you that I am pleased with how they conducted themselves,” said Thea Gardner, principal at College Place Middle School.
No word yet if a suspect was arrested.
