BOUNTIFUL, Utah — Officials say South Davis Junior High School in Bountiful was placed under lockdown protocols Wednesday after a report of a student with a gun.

Police were called to the school and several units arrived on campus. It was later determined the report was a hoax and the school was given the all-clear signal.

Under lockdown protocols, students and staff are ordered to remain inside a locked room. According to the Davis School District, "a lockdown is only initiated when there is an active threat inside or very close to the building."
