5-23-13 mayville schools put on lockdown

Mayville Schools were put on lockdown near the end of the school day Wednesday afternoon after a 911 caller reported to authorities that he saw two men near the High School and Middle School looking into the trunk of a vehicle, and the caller thought he saw a gun.  The two men were outside of an apartment complex at the corner of Clark and Breckenridge Streets.  Mayville Police Chief Chris MacNeill says Dodge County Central Dispatch received the 911 call at 2:30 p.m. and the schools were put on lockdown as a precaution.   MacNeil says a short time later, authorities located the suspects, a 21 year old Mayville man and a 20 year old Sheboygan man, and found three Airsoft replica guns. MacNeill says the suspects stated that one was showing the replica firearms to the other.  After police determined there was no threat to the schools or citizens, the school lockdown was lifted.  MacNeill says the the Mayville man was detained and authorities are determining if charges will be filed.
