School Shut for OPD Search

Alameda High School (AHS) was under a shelter-in-place order by Alameda Police Department (APD) Monday, Feb. 3, while Oakland police officers were searching for suspects near the school.

Around 2:40 p.m. Oakland Police Department (OPD) was conducting an investigation in Alameda when two suspects fled, according to APD reports. As a precautionary measure, APD issued the shelter-in-place alert for AHS and for the Alameda Adult School. The Alameda Unified School District posted a message on its Facebook page alerting parents that students were safe, and to not come the school.

APD assisted OPD by establishing a perimeter. The suspects were arrested a short time later. OPD did not release more information on the suspects or what they were charged with.

APD issued an “all-clear” around 2:48 p.m. APD said the incident was not related to AHS.
