North Miami, FL - A lockdown was lifted at a South Florida high school on Thursday after officials deemed threats of a weapon on campus were not credible.
Officials at North Miami Senior High School were tipped off about a potential weapons violation on Thursday and placed the campus on lockdown as a precaution.
A student told WSVN “there was an announcement, and it said, ‘Code red, code red,’ like, ‘Get down, go to the back,’ and the teacher told us to go back and we all just sat there, like, thinking it was a drill, but then the bell rang, and we were like, ‘Oh, this is actually for real, like, it’s for real.'”
Parents were informed the campus had been placed on lockdown and their children could not leave the school.
Miami-Dade Schools Police responded and didn't find any weapons, declaring the threat not credible and lifting the lockdown.
District officials confirmed no weapons were found on campus.
