A Tennessee high school says it’s evacuating students to a local National Guard Armory amid reports of a person with a gun on campus.
Officials with the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office told WVLT that Volunteer High School – west of Kingsport – was placed on lockdown around 8 a.m. this morning after police received reports of a person there carrying a firearm.
“There has been an emergency situation at Volunteer High School,” Hawkins County Schools said in a statement. “Our major concern at this time is for the safety of our students and staff; please stay clear of the area to allow law enforcement and emergency personnel access to the area.”
