Shelter in place lifted at 3 Santa Fe schools

SANTA FE, N.M. — Shelter in place notifications have been lifted at three Santa Fe schools after two separate threats were made against Capital High School on social media.

Santa Fe police issued an alert at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday saying they were investigating a threat directed toward that Capital High. The high school was then placed on lock down and students at two other nearby schools, César Chávez Elementary and Nina Otero Community School, were ordered to shelter-in-place.

Later, the lock down was lifted at Capital High students were directed to shelter-in-place, a Santa Fe Public Schools spokesman said. But soon after Santa Fe police lifted the shelter-in-place order at the three schools another threat was made on social media and the three schools returned to shelter-in-place status, SFPS spokesman David Carl said.

The second shelter-in-place order at all three schools was lifted by Santa Fe police at about 1:20 p.m.
