NORTH MIAMI, FLA. (WSVN) - A lockdown has been lifted at North Miami Senior High School after police received a report of a weapon on campus, Monday.

According to police, officers received a report about a weapon on the school’s campus at around 8:30 a.m. However, police said they were unable to find a weapon. The lockdown was later lifted, just before noon.

K9 units were called to the scene to help investigators.

7News spoke to a student who described the situation inside the school during the lockdown. “They were just telling us, ‘Remain calm, stay inside the school building at all times’ because they don’t want us to get into any form of danger,” the student said.

Concerned parents also came to the school when they heard the news. “You don’t really know what is going on with your kids inside, they’re locked down. They said everything is fine, that the kids are safe, but obviously, it looks like something is going on,” said parent Florangel Santiago.

Other parents said they are tired of scares like this happening, but in the end, they are happy the situation wasn’t worse.

Classes have resumed for the day.
