The Lockport Police Department has received numerous calls about reports on social media that there was a shooting at tonight's Homecoming Dance. THESE REPORTS ARE NOT ACCURATE. Officers and school officials working at the dance received a report that a student had brought a gun to the dance. The student was quickly identified and was taken into custody. It was determined that the student had not brought a firearm to the dance and that there was never any threat to the school or any students. Two freshmen students exchanged possession of a pellet gun, but the location of this exchange is not clear. A pellet gun was located off of school grounds, but the students in question did not threaten any other students with it. Both students remains in custody rending the approval of charges within the juvenile justice system. As with most dances, officers are at the school providing extra security. This is a routine practice and is not related to any threat.

The Lockport Police Department received a call today from one of our residents that they had gotten a phone call from an individual claiming to be from the Lockport Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Unit. The resident’s caller ID showed that the call came from 815-838-2131. The caller hung up when the resident asked to take a message. This call did not come from the Lockport PD. The resident wisely questioned the caller because she was suspicious about the phone call so we do not know what the caller was trying to accomplish, but the call was likely some sort of a scam. The phone number that showed on the caller ID is the non-emergency number of the Lockport Police Department. The Lockport PD will never contact residents and ask for personal information or to request money. If you receive a phone call from our phone number and are suspicious, please inform the caller that you will be hanging up and calling back. You can then call us at 815-838-2132 during normal business hours or at 815-838-2131 after hours to verify if we called you.

The Lockport invesigations unit is looking to identify the subjects in the attached photos.

If you have any information on the subjects identity please contact the investigations unit at detectives@lockportpolice.info.
