LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) -- A Lansing high school was on lockdown for a short time this morning after a scare involving an airsoft gun.
It happened at Everett High School on they city's near south side.
A school official tells 6 News a neighbor called police after seeing someone near the school put what looked to be a weapon into a backpack around 9:30 a.m.
Police arrived at the school within minutes looking for three teenage boys. School officials confirmed the boys are students at the school.
Officer Robert Merritt with Lansing Police says, "Once the three individuals were confronted, they ran from the officers. They were actually let into the school by a student and within minutes, the officers had the three subjects in custody."
Police found an airsoft gun in one of the students backpacks. No one was hurt.
"Airsoft guns or pellet guns, regardless of what it shoots out, it's still a projectile coming out. It has potential to be dangerous," says Merritt.
Robert Kolt, a spokesperson with the Lansing School District says all three students have been immediately suspended.
"People should feel good that we were able to react so quickly for an incident in the end that didn't threaten anyone's safety," says Kolt.
The scare comes one day after districts in two Michigan counties closed their public school because of potential threats.
School official across the nation are playing it safe one week after a gunman walked into a Connecticut elementary school, killing 20 children and 6 adults.
