SNELLVILLE, Ga. — Brookwood High School in Gwinnett County has been placed on a lockdown, district officials said.

The spokesperson said it had something to do with police activity in the area.

“Apparently they were concerned about someone in the community with a gun or weapon,” they said.

11Alive SkyTracker saw more than a dozen police cars outside the school with officers walking around the campus. Sources are telling 11Alive that officers are inside the school checking the buildings.

In a letter sent to parents, principal Brett Savage said it was a “hard lockdown” and that “all of the students are following protocols that we have practiced and will remain in this state until an all clear is given.”

The Gwinnett County Police Department only said that they were working with the school resource officers searching the campus for any active threat.

Nearby Brookwood Elementary School is on a “soft lockdown,” according to a teacher.
