PEMBERVILLE — Eastwood High School has been placed under lockdown after live ammunition was found inside the building Friday morning.

In a voicemail to members of the Eastwood School District, Superintendent Brent Welker has assured parents that all students are safe and the building will remain on lockdown until he is given the all clear.

Welker says live ammunition shells were found inside a bathroom at the high school before the start of school Friday.

Sheriff’s deputies are on site to investigate the findings and multiple deputies are providing security. School officials are taking cues from Wood county law enforcement.

Welker says the building will remain on lockdown until all origins of the ammunition can be found. “We are treating this incident seriously,” Welker said in his message. “We do have things in good hands.”

  1. Bored in school today? Want to watch a bunch of idiots run around like chickens? Just leave a .22 round in the bathroom. Disrupt the whole place for hours for just a few cents. Just don’t tell anyone or laugh out loud.
