Fern Creek high and elementary schools given all clear after lockdown

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Fern Creek high and elementary schools have been given the all clear after being on lockdown Friday afternoon.

JCPS spokeswoman Lauren Roberts tells us that a student at the high school texted a family member saying they saw another student with a gun. That family member then called police.

Roberts says the student they allegedly saw was reported as absent on Friday. However, some kids said they saw him around campus.

Police have searched and cleared the high school.

We are told both schools will have normal dismissal.

Officials say the person they were looking for was found off school property but nearby.
