White County High School has lifted a lockdown that began earlier this morning after a student brought a gun to the school.
All students are safe, the school district told the AJC.
The lockdown began around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday and ended around 11 a.m.
At 8 a.m. this morning, Channel 2 Action News reported a person at the high school called the White County Sheriff’s Office, stating that a female student barricaded herself in a restroom stall.
She had brought a gun to school, according to Channel 2, and was threatening to injure herself. She did not threaten to harm anybody else.
After two teachers and a counselor spoke to the girl outside the bathroom, she was transported for evaluation, and the lockdown ended, Channel 2 said.
Earlier today, Channel 2 reported that the White County Sheriff’s Office was on the scene.
White County is located about 90 miles north of Atlanta.
