UPDATE 12:24 PM:  GRPD officers were contacted by a resident who advised they were the individual who was reported walking outside Green River High School this morning. The resident was contacted by a relative who saw the released pictures. The resident frequently walks in the area and was carry a walking stick today while walking their dog.

Green River Police Department wants to thank everyone for their assistance in getting the information out in helping identify the individual.

UPDATE 11:30 am:  According to the GRPD, on December 3, 2015 at about 7:00 am an employee of Green River High School reported seeing an individual walking through the parking lot carrying what they thought was a rifle slung over their shoulder with a dog.

The School Resource Officer and School Staff viewed video footage and observed a white male walk from the west towards the south side of the building, with possibly an Airedale Terrier and an object was slung over their shoulder. Extra Officers checked the area and were unable to locate the individual.

As a precautionary measure, all schools with the exception of Washington Elementary went into lockout at about 08:00 a.m., in which the buildings are secured and access is restricted. Students otherwise go through a day to day routine. This is different from a lock down, in which interior rooms and doors such as classrooms and offices are secured.

As of about 9:40 a.m. the lock out was lifted.

Officers are working to identify this individual. If you have any information please contact Green River Police Department at 307-872-0555 or School Resource Officer Ken Yager.
