Police: Man wanted to scare kids with costume

SANTA FE (KRQE) – An unusual threat prompted a Santa Fe school to take shelter in place Friday morning.

A 23-year-old man told a friend that he wanted to dress up like a clown, barge into classrooms at Gonzales Elementary and take pictures of scared students’ reactions.

The man’s friend notified the principal and the students were asked to take shelter in place for a short time while police were notified.

Police say the man is now undergoing a mental evaluation.

He’s not facing any charges at this point.
