UPDATE: As of 10:30 a.m. Friday, June 2, 2017, the suspicious individual seen in areas of Cumberland is now in custody. All schools that were previously placed in lock-in as a precaution are now cleared to lift the lock-in. Schools will dismiss three-hours early as originally scheduled. 

ACPS Statement #1:

On Friday, June 2, 2017, a suspicious individual, who appeared to be armed, was seen in multiple areas in Cumberland. As a precaution, Cumberland City schools and Northeast Elementary School have been placed in lock-in, which means that outside activities are cancelled and all exterior doors remained locked. Today is a scheduled three-hour early dismissal; however, the school system will evaluate early dismissal procedures in cooperation with the Cumberland City Police Department and will advise any potential changes to the early dismissal schedule.


Cumberland City Police have responded to Maryland Avenue and Baker Street for a domestic situation.  Unconfirmed reports say a male subject may have access to a hand gun.

With that possible threat, which is not a direct threat but a concern, Fort Hill High School has been put on a lock in status until it the domestic situation is resolved.
