LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) – Four schools are off lockdown this afternoon after Metro officers secured the perimeter and failed to find a wild bobcat in the west part of the valley.


The Clark County School District Police Department said Piggott, Jacobsen, Derfelt and Johnson schools were affected. Metro Officer Bill Cassell said the schools were returned to normal operations around 12:45 p.m.


“None of the officers actually saw the animal,” Cassell said. “What it was is still unknown.”
