SCC Jackson Campus Was Placed On Lockdown

Jackson Campus was placed on lockdown at approximately 11:05 a.m. on Monday after students reported seeing someone with what they perceived to be a gun near Café ’64. One Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) sergeant who serves on campus was in the vicinity at the time, and more law enforcement officers from JCSO were immediately called to the scene. Upon a thorough investigation of campus, interviewing witnesses and reviewing security footage of the individual in question, law enforcement determined that the students who reported the possible weapon were mistaken, and the lockdown was officially lifted at 2:16 p.m.  Jackson Campus day classes will be canceled following the lifting of the lockdown. We realize this has been a very stressful situation for everyone, making it difficult for students to focus on their studies at this time. SCC has Jackson County Sheriff’s officers on campus during all operating hours.
