ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) – John Williams School No. 5 in Rochester was placed on a 20-minute lockdown during arrival Wednesday morning.

City school district officials told News10NBC that a student brought an unloaded pellet gun to school. Although it wasn’t used to threaten anyone, some students may have seen it. Out of an abundance of caution, the Rochester Police Department and the district’s Safety and Security team were immediately notified.

No students were hurt and families have been notified.
