Lockdown lifted at Morey Middle School, police say threat never materialized

DENVER - A lockdown has been lifted at Morey Middle School in Denver Monday morning after Denver police said a reported threat never materialized and a search of the school found no problems.

Denver Police spokesman Sonny Jackson said a student was threatened over the weekend and there was concern that someone posing a threat might come to school. Police responded to the school, scoured the campus and school building and cleared the area.

Denver Public Schools spokeswoman Kristy Armstrong confirmed the school was locked down after "the school received a report of a general threat made to the campus this morning." School officials reported the threat to police.

The school is located east of the State Capitol at 840 E. 14th Ave.
