LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Police in Louisville, Kentucky, have placed a high school under lockdown after a student reported that she thought she saw a young man with a gun in the school cafeteria.

Officers have been searching room to room for the weapon. They’ve also been interviewing potential witnesses among the 1,200-plus students at Fern Creek Traditional High School. As of midmorning, police said they had not found a gun.
