Rogers High School went into a brief lockdown Wednesday following reports of a social media post showing a student holding a gun.
At about 1:27 p.m., a student saw the post and reported it to a teacher, said Brian Coddington, spokesman for Spokane Public Schools. Police responded to the lockdown and investigated the situation for about 30 minutes.
Coddington said the post, made via Snapchat, turned out to be a picture of a student holding an airsoft gun, and no threat was made.
The student who reported it did everything right, Coddington said.
“We appreciated that quick action,” he said.
