TAHLEQUAH – According to an all-employee email, the lockdown of the Cherokee Nation’s W.W. Keeler Tribal Complex and Sequoyah Schools was lifted at approximately 1 p.m.

“We are no longer on lockdown. We appreciate employees’ cooperation today. Employees can now unlock doors and work on business as usual,” the email states. “We thank our Cherokee Nation Marshals and security for keeping us safe, as this was the safest place for our employees to remain.”

According to a CN Communications email, the complex and Sequoyah Schools were locked down at approximately 11 a.m. after an individual who may have been en route to the complex had made a threat. CN officials then asked employees to “remain in their departments with doors locked, until the lockdown is lifted.”

The email stated that Cherokee Nation marshals and security were on site and worked with other law enforcement.

“Employee safety is always our first concern,” the email states.
