Reeths-Puffer schools out of lockdown

MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) — Reeths-Puffer School District was in a soft lockdown Thursday morning while police attempted to locate a chase suspect in the area.

Muskegon Township police determined the suspect is not a threat to the school or community, so the lockdown came to an end.

Superintendent Steve Edwards said a high-speed chase took place about a mile away from the school, and the suspects ditched their vehicle near Reeths-Puffer High School.

Edwards said police told him the primary suspect was apprehended quickly and while the second suspect remains on the loose, he or she poses no risk to the schools or community. Therefore, the district lifted its lockdown.

The rest of the day will be normal, Edwards said.
