Memphis high school on lockdown after student reported to bring gun to campus
The lockdown was lifted just before 10:30 a.m. EST. Officers have not confirmed that he was ever in possession of a weapon.
The lockdown was initially prompted after school security was told that a student may be carrying a gun during a quarrel between a group of boys, police said.
The suspect did not flee the campus, as was originally reported.
Investigators say they found and detained the student a few minutes later. Police determined that the other students had brass knuckles and/or knives on them.
