Spring Valley School Put On Lockdown

Posted by wlpo on September 30, 2009

Lincoln Elementary School in Spring Valley was put on lockdown Wednesday afternoon after a domestic situation near the school.

According to Spring Valley Police, a woman came to the school just before noon yesterday asking school officials to call police since she was battered by Elmer Jensen. When officers tried talking to Jensen at his house, he refused to come outside. Police then called in the county tactical team for help since it was thought Jensen had a gun and already had a prior domestic incident three years ago where he used a gun.

As the tactical team was coming together, officers were put inside and outside the school. Jensen finally talked to police on the phone and came out of his house without incident. He was then arrested for domestic battery and more charges could be filed. Jensen was taken to the county jail.

Police say they found an unloaded gun in Jensen’s house but it belongs to the alleged victim.
