On January 24, 2022, at approximately 12:22 PM, the Middleton High School Resource Officer received a report from a staff member that there was possibly a student with a gun at the school. Upon receiving this information, the school was put in a lockdown as a search for the subject began.
Multiple officers from the Middleton Police Department and the Dane County Sheriff’s Office responded and searched for the subject, a 16-year-old male from Middleton. After approximately 45 minutes the subject was located and taken into custody without incident. The investigation into this incident is still ongoing.
“The staff and students at Middleton High School, in partnership with our law enforcement partners should be commended for keeping our students and staff safe during this situation,” said Superintendent Dr. Dana Monogue. “The high school will have extra student services staff members on hand to speak with any students who need it.”
At this time, the Middleton-Cross Plains School District press conference has been canceled.
