GREENWICH, Conn. (AP) — Authorities have lifted a lockdown at Greenwich High School that was ordered after police received a report of a gun inside the school.

Police Lt. Kraig Gray says officers searched the school Thursday and no gun was found. He says nobody was injured and police are continuing to look into the report.

William McKersie, the superintendent of schools, issued a statement saying the lockdown was the result of a perceived threat.

Parent Rafael Vintinilla was among those who rushed to the school. He told the Connecticut Post he became scared after his daughter texted him, saying she thought there was a gunman inside the school.

The incident came four months after 26 students and educators were killed inside the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.
