A 911 call about a possible shooting at Central Oregon Community College in Redmond causes the campus to go into lockdown mode for less than an hour this afternoon.

 

COCC spokesman Ron Paradis says the 911 call caused police to lockdown three buildings and evacuate and search one, officers found nothing. 

 

"It was good to see police take action and do a thorough search and lockdown.  Our system worked, we were able to lockdown the building and keep everyone safe.  At the end, there was no credible threat."  Paradis said.

 

The anonymous threat came in closely after a hold-up at David Haffey Fine Jewelry on 6th street in Redmond.  It's not clear yet, if the two incidents are linked.

During the emergency process, thirty people were evacuated from 'building two' on the COCC campus in Redmond while officers made sure there was no threat. 
Police gave the 'all clear' just after 1 p.m.
