Classes are back to normal Thursday at a Rock County school after a concern connected with the father of an alleged killer. A soft lockdown occurred Wednesday morning at Milton West Elementary School, classes were not interrupted but school officials prevented outsiders from coming in.
Milton Police Chief Jerry Schuetz says an anonymous tip claimed Steve Hicke would "take matters into his own hands," referring to a child at the school. This led police to search the home of Hicke. Police say he was cooperative and allowed a consent search of the home where officers found a handgun and a small amount of drugs. Police have since released the suspect.
Steve Hicke is the father of a murder suspect Kyle Hicke , who is being held in jail on accusations he shot his ex-girlfriend in Janesville and then led officers on a chase through Rock County.
