Shawnee Mission East High School was placed on lockdown after someone reported a rumor of a gun on campus.

The possible weapon on the school campus was reported at 9:15 a.m. Thursday.

School officials notified the Prairie Village Police Department, and the school was placed on precautionary lockdown.

After a thorough investigation, police found a small orange plastic toy gun, and it was determined that no credible threat to the safety of students or staff existed.

The building was released from lockdown at 10:35 a.m.

School officials stress that weapons and look-alike weapons are not allowed on school ground and even toys can get students in trouble.
