JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - The Valley View School District said it placed a building on lockdown Friday morning as it investigated a rumor of a gun on campus.

Superintendent Bryan Russell says there was a report that a student had brought a gun to school and showed it to another student in the parking lot.

Around 12:10 p.m. Friday, Russell said the school was removed from lockdown as they found there was no threat to students.

The Jonesboro Police Department stated in a news release the school was locked down after a student posted a “questionable social media post.”

“JPD SROs were already on scene, responded instantly to this post, and determined that the student was not on campus,” JPD stated, adding there was no danger to anyone at the school.

The investigation is ongoing.

3:00 p.m. Update: Upon further investigation into this incident, it was determined that no credible threat was made...
