Logan High school endured a short lockdown on Monday after police say a man held two teenage females at gunpoint over a bicycle he believed had been stolen.
According to a statement from the Logan City Police Department, officers responded to the school around 11 a.m. to a report of a man with a gun in front of the school. While en route, police wrote, a resource officer made contact with a suspect — later identified as Kristopher Egbert, 36, of Logan — at the front door of the school and determined the man did not have a firearm in his possession at that time. Egbert later told police that he had pointed a gun at the girls but had left the firearm in his truck, according to the LCPD statement.
“Logan High School was placed in lock down for approximately 10 minutes while officers ensured they had the situation secured and the school was safe,” police wrote. Read the rest of the story on HJnews.com.
