News in Brief: Four schools on lockdown due to armed person report

At 10:25 a.m. on Thursday, Davis Police received a call from Davis Senior High School administrators reporting a male with a handgun at the north end of the library parking lot.

Davis Senior High School, North Davis Elementary School, St. James Elementary School and King High School were put on lockdown as a precaution for about 35 minutes.

The Davis Police detained the male suspect matching the reported description. The suspect, in his late teens and not enrolled at any of the schools, had a BB gun on him before discarding it. The BB gun was found in the area the suspect was detained.

A second suspect who was with the aforementioned male was detained. Both were eventually released at the scene, since the suspect with the BB gun was never on the campuses and did not use the gun as a threat or brandish it.

As of now, no criminal charges are being pursued.
