Blackhawk Technical College goes on lockdown as police pursue nearby armed subject

UPDATE: Police lifted the lockdown on Blackhawk Technical College and Rock County Christian School but no suspect is in custody as of 4:00 p.m.

Blackhawk Technical College and Rock County Christian School go on lockdown as Rock County Sheriff’s deputies pursue a subject on foot who’s believed to be armed and dangerous.

Rock County Dispatch says the Wisconsin Department of Corrections is working on the investigation in the area of the Rockvale Trailer Home Park.

The sheriff’s office deployed K-9 units, and they requested additional K-9 units from Winnebago County, Illinois.

Police are asking the School District of Janesville and Beloit Turner not to send kids that live in that area home on school buses until the situation is resolved.

Students living in the area will be supervised at their school until parents are able to pick them up.
