KODIAK, Alaska (AP) - Kodiak School District officials say a city school was briefly placed on lockdown after a student threatened another student.

KMXT (https://is.gd/qfgcRn) reports Kodiak Middle School was put on lockdown for nearly 30 minutes Friday morning.

School district spokeswoman Destiny Fitzgerald says administrators are declining to reveal the nature of the threats made, or whether they involved a weapon or were verbal.

Officials say school principal Jethro Jones took the precautionary step of calling for the lockdown at 9:20 a.m. Friday. The lockdown was lifted at 9:45 a.m.

No students were reported injured and no other schools were affected.

Police were notified.
