Southeast Middle School was placed on lockdown Friday after a student threatened to get a gun — but ultimately no gun was found, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

After two students got into an argument at the school, a third student said something about getting a gun, said Casey Rayborn Hicks, a Sheriff’s Office spokesperson.

Deputies placed the school on lockdown and searched every student and room in the school, but did not find a weapon, Hicks said.
