An officer with a gun could also be seen was outside a loading dock door.
Few details have been released by police.
During an interview on 6abc, Erickson said: “From what I understand it was someone who did not work there that was having a confrontation with their significant other.”
Erickson said she knew something was wrong as soon as the facility was being evacuated.
“Then there was a massive police presence as soon as we were walking out of the building, there were a good ten cop cars, they all had their guns drawn out heading toward the main entrance of the building,” Erickson said.
Chopper video showed multiple police vehicles and officers on the streets outside the sprawling complex.
There was no immediate word on injuries.
The Logan Township School District said schools are on modified lockdown. All students and staff are safe, the district said.
