School lockdown lifted in Broward County, Florida

Police responded to a Broward County school after a radio station received a threat Wednesday.

[Updated at 2:00 p.m.] Police in Broward County, Florida, have lifted a school lockdown; Pembroke Pines police Capt. Dan Rakofsky said.

[Original post] All schools in Broward County, Florida, are under lockdown because of what a county spokeswoman described as a "credible threat."

A woman told a local radio station that her husband had threatened to fire shots at a school, police said.

Later, the radio station received an e-mail saying "something big" was going to happen, CNN's Rich Phillips reported.

During a noon news conference, a police spokesman said all students, faculty and staff are safe, and all approximately 300 schools and administrative buildings in Broward County were locked.

    Haha , i was in 2nd period when they came on the speak saying "we're under a code red lockdown all students should not switch classes at the bell" but what sucked the most was that we had to eat lunch an hour late.. since we're the 8th graders we eat at 1:00 so yeah.. but all is good [: i was at PBMS.
