Temporary Lockdown for Martin Elementary and Primary Schools


A few minutes ago, the Martin Police Department was notified by phone of a possible domestic issue in the area of Christine St.  We were given information that there were firearms inside the residence in question. Due to the close proximity of this residence to both the Martin Elementary and Primary Schools, both schools were placed on temporary lockdown as precautionary measures.  Shortly after responding officers discovered that the call had no merit and there was no domestic and/or firearm incident occurring at the residence, the lockdowns were lifted. This entire event occurred between 11:52 and 12:23 this date. Thank you to Weakley County 911 and the administrations and staff at both schools for their cooperation and assistance during the event.
