LONGVIEW (KYTX) – A student at Spring Hill ISD who thought they saw a gun at school notified teachers, and the school was placed in lockdown as police investigated.

It was later determined what appeared to look like a gun was another student's wood shop project, according to school officials.

Spring Hill schools in Longview were put on lockdown shortly after 11 a.m.

Kristie Brian with the Longview Police Department says it was not criminal, and no students were in any danger or threatened.

According to Longview police, the lockdown has been lifted.
