Winona Daily News: Lockdown at Minnesota State College Southeast over; building closed and classes canceled

By Josh DeLaRosa, February 4, 2020

Minnesota State College Southeast was on lockdown for part of Monday afternoon because of an apparent threat, but the lockdown ended after 3:30 p.m.

Officials said the main building on campus was closed for the rest of Monday, and classes Monday night were canceled.

Southeast interim president Larry Lundblad issued a statement Monday evening:

"A lockdown of the Minnesota State College Southeast Winona campus was issued on Monday afternoon at 2:15 pm due to a perceived threat against members of the campus community. The Winona Police Department was called and came to campus to investigate. After their investigation, an All-Clear was issued at 3:27 pm. At this time, there is not an imminent threat to the Southeast community in Winona or Red Wing.

"Out of an abundance of caution, there will be an increased security presence on both campuses throughout the week. Please note that entry to all buildings will be limited to the front doors.

"If you are in need of support or resources, please reach out to the staff in Student Services for assistance. As always, the safety and security of our college community is our most important priority."

Students and teachers were kept in rooms for safety during the lockdown but eventually were allowed to leave.
