St. Paul high school locked down brieflyby Tim Post, Minnesota Public Radio
St. Paul, Minn. — A St. Paul high school went into lockdown today Friday after a report that a student was spotted with a gun.
But St. Paul Police spokesman Sgt. Paul Schnell says the Humboldt High School student was located and no gun was found. Schnell believes the report of a gun may have been incorrect.
"Maybe the focus of this is in fact not a gun at all, but some type of stun gun or something along those lines," he said.
Schnell says the student never made a threat and no weapons were found after a sweep of the school.
Schnell says the school will control access in and out of the building through early afternoon as a precautionary measure.
