Bullets Fly In Newark, Four Area Crime Scenes Reportedly Connected

Several Police agencies are investigating four separate crime scenes that are believed to be connected.

Earlier today Newark High School was placed on lockdown after there were reports that a student was possibly armed in the school. As the lockdown was underway multiple parents contacted FSU reporting that their children were on a code-red lockdown. Multiple officers responded to the school and found that it was likely that the student had left the school.

As officers cleared the school additional officers responded to a home on Andries Road, off of Red Mill Road. Initial reports indicate that there may have been a shooting victim in the area of the home.

Police also responded to Possum Park Road where they found a vehicle with at least 10 bullet holes in it. Police are also on scene at a fourth crime scene at an area hospital. Initial reports also indicate that a person was injured by gunfire and responded to the hospital.

All four crime scenes are believed to be connected, however, police have not confirmed that information just yet.

Newark Police said in an update that Newark High School dismissal was complete. They also confirmed that the student who was being sought has been located and is in custody.
