ALBURNETT, Iowa (AP) - A lockdown at an eastern Iowa high school has been lifted after authorities cleared a weapon threat.

The Linn County Sheriff’s Office says the lockdown at Alburnett High School in Alburnett began Wednesday afternoon after authorities said they received a report about a person with a long gun at or near the school. It was lifted less than an hour later.

Authorities said they found a BB gun on school property. They initially reported finding a long gun.

Cedar Rapids television station KCRG reports (https://bit.ly/1khhD4B ) a student was questioned about the weapon, but no charges are likely.

Authorities say there were no reports of shots fired or threats. No one was injured.
