Del Rio High School coaching staff went into a lockdown drill Wednesday morning, out of an abundance of caution, after they received the report of an alleged threat on social media. In the afternoon everything went back to normal at Del Rio High School.

The San Felipe Del Rio Consolidated Independent School District received a report of an active shooter at Del Rio High School Wednesday noon, prompting a lockdown drill, the school district reported.

District Police Chief Duane Maldonado confirmed a parent notified coaching staff of a message circulating on social media stating there was an active shooter on campus, the school district said.
