Toledo Police say the suspect is now in custody after responding to a reported person with a gun at Scott High School in central Toledo.
Police say the person is not an active shooter. The school is currently on lockdown and parents have been notified of the situation.
Toledo Police spokesperson Lt. Mark King says police negotiators are speaking with a 14-year-old student who is isolated in a hallway. King says two classrooms near the hallway have been evacuated.
King says police negotiators saw what appeared to be the handle of a hand gun, but that it is unclear what type of weapon the student is holding.
A TPS spokesperson says this is an isolated event and students are safe, but will not be released until the situation is resolved. King stressed that all other students still inside the school are safe.
Thanking you both.
