Police have confirmed that a 13-year-old girl is in custody after F.W. Johnson Collegiate was under lockdown Friday morning and several elementary schools in the area were in ‘secure the building’ mode.
Just before noon, three hours after the lock down started, the school released the children and no injuries were reported.
Police said they received a call at 9:15 a.m. of a firearm in the school. Officers responded and a lockdown was enacted.
Once the 13-year-old girl was arrested, the firearm was discovered to be an airsoft that looked very similar to a rifle.
Deputy Chief of Operations Lorilee Davies said there is no indication any shots were fired.
The other schools include Glen Elm School, Henry Braun School, Dr. George Ferguson, St. Catherine Community School, Judge Bryant School and St. Theresa School.
