Lockdown at Accomack County Administration Building

Accomack County Schools Website

There are more details emerging about the threats that led to the lockdown of the Accomack County Administration Building at 4 p.m. yesterday.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the offices on the second floor were locked down after several threatening calls were received that included profane language.

Accomack County School Superintendent Kregg Cuellar, whose board has offices on that floor, said that the Sheriff’s Office was immediately contacted as the building was put on lockdown.

In addition, he said that the schools in the system were also notified and told to be on the lookout for any unusual behavior.

All of the schools and school offices will open as usual today but will also be on alert.
