A school in Connecticut was temporarily placed in lockdown while police negotiated with a barricaded person.

In New Haven County, the Momauguin Elementary School was locked down as a precaution and police advised the public to stay away from Stevens Street between Austin Avenue and Soundview Avenue on Tuesday, Jan. 25.

It is unclear why officers were negotiating with the barricaded person, including the South Central Regional SWAT team, which was activated, according to police.

A “shelter in place order” was also extended to include North Atwater, Henry Street, and George Street.

More information is expected to be released on Tuesday afternoon.
