AUSTIN, Minn. – The man who provoked a Mower County school lockdown gets probation.
Grady Lee Gabbard, 57 of Austin, was sentenced Friday to five years of probation and must do 300 hours of community work service. Gabbard was arrested in December 2017 after he called a rape crisis hotline in Texas and talked about a “mass casualty” event. That information was relayed to Mower County and led to a “soft lockdown” in the Southland and Le Roy-Ostrander school districts.
Gabbard was taken into custody after law enforcement surrounded his home. He eventually pleaded guilty to one count of terroristic threats.
