GREENVILLE.JPGGREENVILLE, Mich. (May 15, 2014) — Police have apprehended an individual who caused a lock-down situation at Greenville Public Schools, which then resulted in other delays at other districts in the area.

Michigan State Police responded to a call of a possible armed subject near the middle and high school in the Greenville Public School district.  They were put in a lock-down situation as well as a two hour delay as a result.  Once the individual was in custody, Greenville’s superintendent was in the process of deciding a course of action for the rest of the day.
