WENATCHEE (AP) — A woman’s Halloween costume that included a realistic-looking AR-15 toy rifle sent Wenatchee police officers and Chelan County sheriff’s deputies rushing to a school.
A passer-by reported seeing someone walking near Lewis and Clark Elementary with what appeared to be an assault rifle. The school was put on lockdown for about a half-hour Thursday afternoon while the report was checked out.
KHQ-TV reports that dispatchers received another call from someone who said a friend had just walked home wearing a costume that included a replica rifle.
The Wenatchee World reports the woman wearing the costume was in her 20s.
Sgt. Jim West says officers contacted her and told her, “carrying a ‘weapon’ like that was probably not the wisest of ideas.”

Walla Walla lockdown: Four units at the state penitentiary are on lockdown after a fight involving four offenders Saturday evening. The assault, which injured several staff and inmates, occurred about 7:40 p.m. in a common area of one of four close-custody living units in the West Complex, which is the prison’s second-highest custody level. The Associated Press reported that staff recovered several weapons that had been used in the assault and placed six offenders in segregation. All activities in the West Complex, including visiting, have been cancelled for the rest of the weekend but the lockdown will not impact scheduled activities for the rest of the facility.
