(Reuters) - North Forest High School in Houston was on lockdown Friday following a report that a student has a gun, a police spokesman told Reuters.

The police were notified just before 11 a.m. of a disturbance with a weapon, said Kese Smith, a spokesman with the Houston Police Department.

"We do have our officers out there," Smith said at about noon local time.
