Lockdown Lifted At Moore Elementary School
MOORE, Okla. (AP) -- Classes have resumed at an Oklahoma elementary school that was briefly placed on lockdown after a teacher found a loaded handgun in his classroom. Moore Police Department spokesman Jeremy Lewis says students at Plaza Tower Elementary School were not in any danger. Police searched the building to make sure there were no more weapons. Police say the teacher found the handgun in his chair when he arrived at work Monday morning. Students who were already at the school were taken to the cafeteria, while parents who were dropping off their children were turned away. Lewis says there was a substitute teacher in the classroom Friday and police are trying to determine whether that teacher had any information about the gun.
