HIGHLAND, Ind. (AP) - A northwestern Indiana school district was placed on lockdown for more than two hours after a person threatened to shoot up a high school.

School Town of Highland Superintendent Brian Smith says the lockdown was lifted about 1:45 p.m. Wednesday after police told school officials it was safe to do so. Police has received a call about 11:30 a.m. from a person threatening to shoot students at Highland High School. The call came from a Dallas phone number.

Smith says the high school and five other schools in the district were placed on lockdown as a precaution. Smith says police were posted outside the school and students were kept in the classes they were in.

Smith says the school district sent alerts to parents.
