Vincennes elementary goes on lock-down

VINCENNES, Ind. (WTHI) – On Friday afternoon, just before 3 p.m., Tecumseh-Harrison Elementary in Vincennes went on lock-down.

An official release stated a man was being served a warrant by the Knox County Sheriff’s Department, U.S. Marshal’s and Indiana State Police when he fled on foot and attempted to enter the school.

Local law enforcement communicated quickly with school administrators and were able to go on an immediate lock-down and they did not release students at the normal 2:45 p.m. dismissal.

Officials give credit to the quick thinking of a VCSC bus driver, who also serves as a reserve officer for the Bicknell Police Department.

While waiting on school grounds with his bus awaiting normal dismissal he noticed the individual attempting to enter the school.

The efforts of the bus driver allowed law enforcement to apprehend the individual.

The Knox County Sheriff’s Office incarcerated Campbell on the following charges: possession of a firearm by a violent felon, contempt, resisting law enforcement.

Further investigation by the Knox County Sheriff’s Department led to the following charges; criminal confinement with a deadly weapon, pointing a firearm, possession of stolen property, possession of methamphetamine, possession of paraphernalia and maintaining a common nuisance.

The incident in the aforementioned charges took place on February 6.
