Officials placed Santa Maria High School on lockdown for nearly an hour after police received reports of a student with a firearm. The lockdown spanned approximately 10:55 to 11:50 a.m.

Police officers arrived on the campus and contacted the student in question. Officers determined the student had a knife, not a gun.

Officers detained and cited the student, who was then sent home. No one suffered any injuries, and normal school activities resumed on campus.
