MONROE - Monroe schools, along with a number of others in southcentral Wisconsin, went into "soft" lockdown Friday in response to a potential threat from a Janesville man claiming that he intended to attack an unspecified school Thursday. According to a Rock County Sheriff press release, Joseph A. Jakubowski, 32, is a suspect in a Tuesday burglary of a Janesville gun shop in which a large number of handguns and rifles were stolen. Jakubowski's vehicle was found on fire shortly after, with evidence of arson.
