Schools locked-down after reports of student with a gun


Brighton High School was locked-down, and several Brighton schools were put on lock-out status this afternoon, after police received anonymous Safe2Tell reports that a student at Brighton High School had seen another student loading a firearm in a school restroom.

Officers from several area law enforcement agencies assisted in evacuating students to safety and searching the school. No weapon was located, and no student has been identified as having presented a legitimate threat to others.

Brighton police would like to thank parents, school officials, and area law enforcement for their assistance and support in responding to this incident.
