Robstown Early College High School went into lockdown Tuesday after reports of a student possibly having a gun at the school.

According to Robstown ISD Superintendent Maria Vidaurri, one student overheard two other students say that someone had brought a gun into the school. Staff was notified, and the school initiated a lockdown protocol at about 11 a.m.

Vidaurri says the incident was initially reported as a Code Blue Medical Emergency, though it is still not clear why. The call was later changed to Code Red.

Robstown Police, Nueces County Sheriff’s Deputies and Texas Department of Public Safety Troopers were called to the scene.  Vidaurri says authorities searched every classroom, every locker and every student, looking for the weapon.

Vidaurri says no weapons were found. 

Police cleared the scene, and the lockdown was lifted around 1 p.m. Vidaurri says the school will maintain increased security until further notice.
