KNIGHTSTOWN, Ind. (WISH) – Police say Knightstown High School officials will initiate an external lockdown until further notice after suspicious activity was discovered on Wednesday.

According to a release from the Knightstown Police Department, after school hours on Wednesday, suspicious activity was discovered. Though police haven’t said what exactly that suspicious activity was, it has prompted school officials to initiate an external lockdown of the high school until further notice.

Police say this is being done as a precaution while the incident is under investigation by law enforcement. As a result, all students, faculty and staff are being asked to enter through the west doors—the bus entrance.

Officials say all backpacks, bags, purses and persons will be subject to search upon arrival at the request of school officials.

Officers from the Knightstown Police Department, Henry County Sheriff’s Department, and Indiana State Police will be there to conduct the searches and ensure the safety of all students, faculty and staff, the release said.
