There was a brief lockdown of Crittenden County High School and Middle School on Monday after a firearm was inadvertently brought on campus.

The gun was determined to have been left in a student's vehicle from a weekend recreational activity. The school said there was never any threat to other students or staff.

Kentucky prohibits any person from knowingly possessing or carrying a firearm, whether openly or concealed, in a building, on a bus, or on any school property.

Crittenden County Schools posted about it on their Facebook page on Monday:

Earlier this morning, a soft lockdown was called at Crittenden County High School and Middle School following an observation made by a staff member on parking lot supervision. The staff member observed firearms in a student vehicle and immediately took action. Our SRO James Duncan and law enforcement officials  promptly arrived and investigated the situation. It was determined that the firearms were left in the vehicle as a result of a weekend recreational activity, and there was no danger to students or staff. Safety is our top priority, however, so all measures were taken to ensure security. We applaud the vigilance of our staff for their immediate and appropriate action.
