PROVO, Utah — Provo High School was put on a brief lockdown Thursday afternoon as police investigated reports of a man with a weapon at the school.

"Officers are currently investigating a possible weapons offense at Provo High School. The school is in lockdown while police clear the school," Provo School District said in a statement.

The lockdown was then lifted around 2:30 p.m.

Police said the students were evacuated after a call came in at 12:37 p.m. from Provo High. A student notified a teacher about seeing a gun during an argument between two males.

Officers lifted the lockdown after they found the two subjects they were looking for.

There were no injuries reported.
