Was there actually an armed parent on campus or not? It's just not really clear....

DAVID F. ASHTON - One marked and one undercover police car remained at the entrance of Creston K-9 School, when an armed parent was reported to have entered the school. The police later left without making an arrest. School got off to a rocky start on Thursday morning, September 18, at Creston School, a kindergarten through ninth grade facility. The school, at 4701 S.E. Bush Street, saw over a dozen Portland Police Bureau (PPB) squad cars swarming into the area.

Some officers closed off all the roads leading away from the school; others went inside to investigate what was originally dispatched as a "School Incident – With Weapon".

However, by 9:30 a.m., all but three of the police units had left the area and gone back on patrol.

Later, Portland Police spokesperson Sgt. Chris Burley told THE BEE, "Preliminary information suggested a parent who was not authorized to pick up a student had arrived at the school, and was armed. But, investigating officers determined that – based on the information gathered in their investigation – there was not a danger to the community."
