A middle school in Waterbury was placed on a short lockdown Friday morning after two students reported seeing a man armed with a gun within the school.

Waterbury Police arrived at North End Middle School with multiple police units in order to secure the school. Police quickly determined that there was no threat to the school, after discovering that the man was an on-duty plainclothes police officer.

The lockdown was called off by 10:00am and students were allowed to return to class. At this time, the school has resumed its normal activities.
