McKinney North relocated some after-school activities Wednesday after police were called to a residence at the southwest corner of Wilmeth Road and Community Avenue around 3:30 p.m.
MPD had not released information about the situation, but while one local news outlet called it “a possible hostage situation,” it apparently involved just one individual who did not pose a threat to anyone else.
“We were notified by the McKinney PD that because of the proximity of the incident, they advised us to relocate some of our after-school activities,” MISD Chief Communications Officer Cody Cunningham said. “They did not feel the need to recommend us going into a lockdown, however we did move some students who were practicing band, for example. We also had a JV football game between North and JJ Pearce, and we relocated those students from the field to the athletic practice facility.”
The football game was canceled, as a result, Cunningham said, merely as a precautionary measure.
No North students were involved in the police matter, and Cunningham said it was not related to the school district.
“While (police) couldn’t give us details, they did not feel the individual posed any threat to anybody else,” Cunningham said.
