HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut State Police say a student has been detained in connection with a threat that forced a lockdown at a high school in Hartford. No one was injured.
City officers and a state police SWAT team responded to Prince Technical High School on Thursday morning.
Hartford Deputy Police Chief Brian Foley says someone made a threat on social media. He says initial reports of a student with a handgun at the school were incorrect. He said the students were safe.
Details of the threat weren't disclosed.
State Police said the lockdown was lifted Thursday afternoon.
A school official declined to comment.
Many concerned parents gathered outside the school and were waiting to see their children.
