L'Anse Creuse North High School on lockdown after reports of possible gun at school

Lockdown has been lifted; no gun found

MACOMB TOWNSHIP, Mich. – L'Anse Creuse North High School was placed on lockdown Monday afternoon after reports of a possible weapon on school grounds. 

The Macomb County Sheriff's Office said deputies went to the school after it was reported that two students received a post via Snapchat that stated: “I have a gun in my backpack."

"The post was made to a Snapchat group used by L’Anse Creuse North students. After deputies arrived a second post was sent to the group by the same user that stated 'lmao jk,'" a statement from the Sheriff's Office reads. 

Deputies were at the high school investigating Monday afternoon. 

School officials put the school on a modified lockdown status. That means students may move throughout the building and classes go on as usual with nobody leaving or coming into the building.

The lockdown has since been lifted. 

No gun has been found. No further posts have been made. Any parent wishing to pick their child up early will have to be greeted at the door and show identification. 

Update: Person responsible located

Sheriff’s deputies have located the person responsible for sending the posts stating he had a gun in his backpack. This person does not have any weapons, the Sheriff's Office said.

"No weapons have been located. The modified lock down has been lifted at this time. Deputies continue to investigate at this time," a statement from the Sheriff's Office reads.
