Hilton investigation leads to lock out Friday morning
HILTON N.Y. (WHEC) — Village Elementary School and Merton Williams Middle School were under lock out for about four hours Friday.
A call was placed to check the welfare of a person in a home at around 8:30 a.m Friday after a domestic situation Thursday night. Neighbors in the area of Hilton Drive and Rolling Meadows Drive were told to stay in their homes.
The schools were in lock out during the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office investigation as a precaution.
"The safety and security of our community is our top priority so we showed up, we established a perimeter, we put out a hyper reach to tell everybody to shelter in place and remain safe," said Deputy Brendan Hurley.
Hurley said after making contact with someone in the house, deputies determined there was no threat and the lock out was lifted.
Authorities said there are no charges filed at this time.
