Peters: “This morning at about 8:55 we got a call about a disturbance involving a weapon. Troopers responded out there. Ultimately, they did do a SERT page and called out SERT members to go to the incident. The active incident itself is over. We have one person detained and Troopers are continuing the investigation into that incident. The disturbance was about three miles away from one of the schools and we did notify the school district that we were operating in the area.”
Kenai Peninsula School District Communications Specialist Pegge Erkeneff said the Troopers notified Tustamena Elementary due to the proximity of the event.
Erkeneff: “Tustamena was not in lockdown at any time. As a precaution, our principal did lock the front door, and at this time the Troopers have notified the school that everything’s been taken care of and everything’s totally normal and the students knew nothing.”
