The school was not placed on lockdown during the incident and no weapons were found. A spokesperson with the Granite School District told FOX 13 News it was a "standard response" by police.

It is not known why the particular student was questioned.

School proceeded as normal despite the incident, and by 11 a.m. there was no longer a police presence on campus.

Last month, two Hunter High School students were shot and killed by another student following an off-campus altercation. The 14-year-old suspect in the shooting was charged with two counts of felony murder.

Ben Horsley with the Granite School District said it is unknown if Wednesday's incident is related to the shooting.
