The police have taken one person into custody after a regional SWAT team responded earlier this evening to Concord High School. The police are offering few details at this time, but Chief John Duval said at about 9:15 p.m. that "concerns from earlier this evening have subsided."

"We're just trying to figure out we have at this point," he said.

More than a dozen officers were gathered outside the school on Warren Street at about 9 p.m. Individuals gathered outside said the building, where a play rehearsal and culinary class were being held tonight, was evacuated at about 8 p.m.
