CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. -

Authorities say North Clayton Middle School was placed on lockdown shortly before noon Thursday after a BB gun was found on campus.

School officials say that North Clayton Middle School located on W. Fayetteville Rd. was placed on lockdown as a precaution for over a half hour after they received reports of a weapon on campus. They found a student had brought a plastic BB gun to school. Campus police say it was not loaded.

The student, who is under the age of 16, will likely be charged with having a weapon on campus and disrupting school according to a school spokesperson. It was not immediately clear if the student brought the gun on to campus intentionally.
