AUBURN — The Green River Community Community College was placed on lockdown Monday after a student made a veiled threat to a faculty member.

A large police presence was seen on the campus in the 1200 block of SE 320th Street in Auburn around 10:50 a.m.

Auburn Police said at around 10:15 a.m. Monday a student made a ‘general threat’ to a faculty member saying ‘something to the effect that there was going to be a shooting.’

Police said the student walked to the parking lot and they believe left campus. Sources said no weapons were found and the campus was swept as a precaution.

Some in the area tweeted about the event around 10:50 a.m. Monday, posting pictures of a lockdown message sent to students.

The threat follows a shooting event at a high school in Marysville Friday that left three students dead. This was the second police call to an area school Monday, as a Molotov cocktail was discovered at a Seattle high school.
