ATLANTA (August 13, 2014) Two students were taken into custody Wednesday after a report of a student with a gun prompted a lockdown at a high school in Atlanta.

No shots were fired and no one was hurt Wednesday at Douglass High School, Atlanta police Sgt. Greg Lyon said.

Students, faculty and staff were safe while the campus was searched, Atlanta Public Schools spokesman James Malone said.

Parents were notified of the situation by email and automated calls, he said.

The lockdown was implemented around 11:30 a.m. and was lifted just before 3 p.m., he said.
