A lockdown at Arlington's Lamar High School was lifted about lunchtime on Tuesday.
Here is the latest statement from the school:
The lockdown at Lamar High School has been lifted. No handgun was located. The Arlington Police Department is confident that the suspect is not on campus. The campus will be closed for lunch. All students will eat inside the cafeteria on a staggered schedule. Parents who wish to pick up their students may do so with their ID through the east and main offices. Early release students will be dismissed as normal at 1:08 p.m.
Arlington police public information officer Tiara Ellis Richard said Arlington police assisted campus resource officers by bringing a K9 dog on campus. No gun was found.
The search began about 8:40 a.m. after one student told a resource officer thought that he or she had seen another student with a gun. The reported suspect had wavy hair, an orange t-shirt and a backpack.
Police locked down the school and searched all youngsters matching that description, but found nothing.
"We will maintain a visible presence on campus today in addition to our normal school resource officers assigned to the campus. We will continue to work with the school on any additional leads that may emerge," Richard said in a statement.
