Carnation's Stillwater Elementary locked down as precaution; One arrested

Police activity at nearby Lake Marcel prompted a brief lockdown at Stillwater Elementary School on Monday morning, April 21.

The lockdown was implemented out of an abundance of caution, said a King County Sheriff's spokesperson, but there was no threat at the school. Deputies were responding to a domestic violence incident in a nearby home.

King County Sheriff’s deputies apprehended a subject in the incident by noon. Police notified the school that the incident was over, ending the lockdown.
