ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Police say school resources officers took a man into custody after he threatened them with a gun outside an Anchorage high school.

Anchorage police say the man had demanded to see his children at West High School Tuesday morning, and got into an argument with school staff before leaving the school.

Anchorage School District spokeswoman Heidi Embley says the man’s wife told staff members her husband had a gun.

School resource officers confronted him outside the building, where police say he threatened the officers with the firearm.

He surrendered to officers three minutes later.



Embley says the school was not put on lockdown, as police first reported.
