Public Information Officer for the Cherry Creek School District Lauren Snell confirmed that Smoky Hill High School in Aurora was placed on a secure perimeter for a brief amount of time Thursday morning.
The Aurora Police Department was notified of a suspicious man walking in the area just after 8 a.m. The man was allegedly carrying a long gun.
According to APD, a resident in the area viewed their Ring camera at 6:50 a.m. and noticed the suspicious man, but officers were not notified until 8 a.m.
