Canoga Park High School was on lockdown Thursday morning as the Los Angeles Police Department were on scene to conduct a search for a person who may have brought a gun onto the campus.

The suspect was described as a male about 16 to 18 years old, and is possibly a student, reports City News Service.

Monica Carazo of the Los Angeles Unified School District said school police saw the young man with a gun near the campus and tried to question him, but he fled onto the school grounds.

LAPD Officer Christopher No confirms a gun was recovered at the school. No further information about the teen suspect has been made available.
