A brief lockdown was in effect Monday morning at Oswego East High School after a student allegedly pushed two staff members and the school resource officer, then attempted to re-enter the campus, Oswego police said.

The 17-year-old male student was “directed out of the building” at around 9 a.m. after allegedly shoving the officer and staff members, police said. The teen then attempted to re-enter the building, 1525 Harvey Road.

Although the student was prevented from re-entering the building, authorities put the campus on lockdown as a precaution, spokeswoman Cathy Nevara said in a press release.

No one was injured in the incident, which ended when Oswego police convinced the teen to be taken to an area hospital for evaluation, police said. The lockdown lasted about 10 minutes.

As of Monday afternoon, the student had not been arrested. Information on the incident has been sent to the Kendall County State’s Attorney’s office, which could potentially file charges against the teen, according to police.
