LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Police in Louisville, Kentucky, have
placed a high school under lockdown after a student reported that
she thought she saw a young man with a gun in the school cafeteria.
Officers have been searching room to room for the weapon.
They've also been interviewing potential witnesses among the
1,200-plus students at Fern Creek Traditional High School. As of
midmorning, police said they had not found a gun.
Police helicopters have been hovering over the school. And video
from the scene shows an officer with a dog searching cars in the
school parking lot.
Dozens of parents have also gathered outside the school. Some
say they received text messages from their children saying they
were locked in their classrooms with the lights out.
