HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WJBK) -

Students at L'Anse Creuse High School were evacuated Tuesday morning after reports of a suspicious person roaming the halls in military gear.

Macomb Co. Sheriff Anthony Wickersham says the man was a 21-year-old former student and airman at nearby Selfridge Air National Guard base. He arrived on campus after his overnight shift to meet with a school counselor after 6 a.m. wearing a camouflage uniform, flack jacket and an empty gun holster.

An overnight custodian noticed the man and alerted school officials, who were unaware of the man's plans to meet with the counselor in order to obtain a letter of recommendation. Police say the man was unable to find the counselor and left the building.

The school was placed on lockdown and buses filled with students were forced to wait at a nearby grocery store parking while police conducted their investigation.

In the end, the former student was located at his Harrison Township home and questioned. "He was very cooperative," said Wickersham. No charges plan to be filed.

Wickersham says the man made a "bad judgement" wearing camo to his former high school.

In light of the morning's events, classes were canceled at the high school and neighboring Graham Elementary and L'Anse Creuse Middle.
