RICHLAND, WA- Richland High School parents received an email from Tim Praino, the school's principal, regarding short lockdowns at the school Friday morning.

Praino explains at 7:55 a.m. a student passed out and hit their head on the concrete in the courtyard area. Staff called 911 and the student was transported to Kadlec. At the time of this email, no status update was provided on the condition of that student.

After that lockdown, a security guard reported a 20-year-old man in the building trespassing, students and staff then when into another non-critical lockdown. Someone in the PE department observed that same man riding a scooter in the upstairs foyer of the gym. Once he was confronted by security, 911 was called. 

The man jumped in a car and left the campus, however a staff member wrote down the license plate number and police made his arrest shortly after. 

Praino told parents, "There were anywhere from 15-20 staff members involved in this morning's activities and I am extremely proud of everyone."

NBC Right Now is working to confirm information of a third non-critical lockdown, but has not heard back from the district. This post will be updated as more information becomes available.
