Gross Elementary placed on lockdown after man threatened students

F.W. Gross Elementary was placed on lockdown Thursday after a man threatened to harm the students Thursday afternoon.

Victoria Independent School District confirmed the school was put into lockdown mode after a middle-aged man made threatening comments to students on the playground through the fence.

Staff members were able to safely bring the students inside after the threats.

The man was later taken into custody near the campus and the lockdown was lifted shortly afterwards.
