Yuma students released following report of gun, lockdown

[Posted at 7:14 p.m. ET] No gun was found, no injuries were reported and no arrests were made after police were told of a possible sighting of a student with a gun at a Yuma, Arizona, elementary school, CNN affiliate KYMA reported.

Two elementary schools and some preschools were put on lockdown Tuesday morning because of the possible sighting. Students were sent home by the afternoon, though some of them were first bused to a Yuma elementary school that hadn't been locked down, KYMA reported.

[Posted at 1:51 p.m. ET] Three schools in the Yuma, Arizona, area have been put on lockdown as a precautionary measure because of a possible sighting of a student with a gun, the Yuma Police Department said.

Officers are investigating reports that a student might have been seen with a gun this morning at Yuma's Rancho Viejo Elementary School, police said.

That school, plus nearby Salida Del Sol Elementary School and a preschool, have been locked down, according to the department.

    No cause for alarm. Probably just another 'patriot' exercising his 2nd amendment rights.

      Look, I for one think that children SHOULD be allowed to carry guns in school. The point of a gun is for the protection of yourself and your property. I know if I was allowed to carry a gun when I was in school; I would not have been bullied as much. If the schools are not going to protect our children from psychos and bullies then it is up to Responsible children of Responsible Adults to be allowed to carry firearms in schools.

    Looks like there is going to be a bigger push for gun control.
