Titusville High School Under Lockdown

UPDATE:  Titusville High School ‘Fake Bomb’ Was Actually A School Project

TITUSVILLE, Florida – Titusville High School is under lockdown due to two suspicious packages found on campus around 8 a.m. on Thursday, March 22, 2018.

Students are not being permitted to enter the school and are being turned around at the school car entrances.

Titusville police are asking parents to not drop their children off at the school’s campus. Some students, mostly bus riders, have been moved to the football field.

Several police cars are on scene at the campus.

Employees are slowly being evacuated from the high school.

Northbound traffic on U.S. 1 is being stopped near the intersection of Harrison Street.

The bomb squad must first determine the nature of the packages before the campus is declared clear.

UPDATE:

According to Titusville Police, the package was not an explosive device but was “clearly designed to simulate an explosive device.”

Titusville Police are now reviewing security footage to determine who was responsible for leaving the package.

If you have any information regarding this incident, Titusville Police ask that you contact Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS.

Parents and student must still wait for notification from Brevard County Public Schools before returning to Titusville High School.
