News Release
Clark County Deputies Respond to Prank Call of Active Shooter at Heritage High School, Everyone is Safe - 11/22/22

On November 22nd, 2022 at 08:23 Clark County Sheriff was dispatched to Heritage High School at 7825 NE 130th Ave, regarding seven students being shot within the school.  The caller claimed to be a teacher inside the school.  The first Deputy was inside the school within two minutes of the call being dispatched, within another 40 seconds five more Deputies had arrived along with numerous law enforcement from other jurisdictions.  Within two minutes of Deputies arriving, it was determined there was no incident at the school and the call was a prank. 

The Sheriff's Office thanks all the surrounding agencies who quickly responded to the call, Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency who quickly and accurately processed and dispatched the information, as well as Heritage Staff and Administration who were prepared and worked seamlessly with arriving first responders.  

The incident was very high stress and was quickly resolved due to the first responding Deputy previously being assigned as a School Resource Officer at Heritage.  This incident illustrates the need for Law Enforcement who are assigned to the security of our schools in Clark County.  School Resource Officers were removed from unincorporated Clark County Schools in 2020 when school campuses were closed due to the pandemic.

Clark County Sheriff is investigating the origin of the call.  Initial investigations show the caller had a similar accent and speaking style as the false school shooting report at Henrietta Lacks High School on September 16th, 2022 in Vancouver, WA.
