School placed on lock-down after man threatens estranged wife

LOGAN — Spring Creek Middle School was temporally placed on lock-down Tuesday morning after a man threatened his estranged wife outside a nearby doctor’s office.

Cache County Sheriff’s Lt. Mike Peterson said deputies were called to 286 North Gateway Drive in Providence around 8:50 a.m. The complainant reported a man was threatening a female with a weapon.

When they arrived on the scene, deputies found that 50-year-old Shane Kirby of Grace, Idaho, had confronted the woman and another male acquaintance in the parking lot of the office building. He reportedly had verbally threatened them but was not found to be in possession of any weapon. He was taken into custody for questioning and later arrested.

Peterson said no children or staff at the middle school were in danger. The temporary lock-down was only due to the close proximity between the school and the office building.

Kirby was booked into the Cache County Jail on suspicion of disorderly conduct and making a violent threat, both class B misdemeanors.
