Report of Firearm on Campus

Case # 23-000484


On January 24, 2023, around 1:50 PM, the Chico Police Dispatch Center received a call regarding a male with a firearm on Chico Senior High School’s campus. Officers immediately responded to the school with all available resources.

As the call evolved, officers developed information that the report of an armed subject might be unfounded. However, due to the nature of the call, officers still deployed and conducted a check of the school and surrounding areas.

Eventually, officers determined there was no armed subject on campus. Chico Senior High and surrounding schools were locked down as a precautionary measure. The lockdown has since been lifted.

The Chico Police Department is committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of our community’s students, staff, and faculty.  We appreciate the cooperation of parents in staying away from the area, allowing us to devote all resources to resolving the incident.
