Officers and the canine unit then swept though the complex.

“After a thorough search of the school no weapons or additional ammunition were found,” police said in a statement Thursday afternoon.

“We have no reason to believe that a weapon was actually on school grounds.”

The middle school, which is next door to the high school, was put in a shelter in place for more than two hours.

No other information is available at this point in the investigation.
