SHOOTING THREAT: Lockdown Over For Northwest Iowa School

A northwest Iowa school district was put in lockdown Monday after authorities say a man threatened to shoot people in the community.

The Sioux County Sheriff’s Office says around 1:00 p.m. there was report that a 22-year-old man in Hospers made threats that he wanted to shoot a bunch of people and then himself.

In response to these Facebook threats, school officials at M-O-C Floyd Valley went into temporary lockdown.

The sheriff’s office says they have the person in custody.

The school lifted the lockdown around 2:30 p.m.
