Three Casper schools had a lockout Thursday morning after police received a report of a person carrying a handgun in the area. No students were injured and the lockout was lifted shortly after.
Casper police received a call from someone that said a person was tailgating them on CY Avenue. The tailgater followed the caller into the parking lot of Roosevelt High School and brandished a handgun, according to the caller.
Officers responded to the area and officials put Roosevelt High School, CY Middle School and Pathways Innovation Center on a lockout. Police described the move as “precautionary.”
When officers arrived, they determined with the assistance of the Natrona County School District that the person with the suspected handgun was a student at Roosevelt High School.
That student was carrying an air soft BB gun, authorities say.
Police said there were no threats to students, faculty or citizens during the incident.
