Northville — Police have reopened Northville High School after locking it down due to a tip that a student had brought a weapon to school and had plans to use it.

According to the Northville Township Police Department, the lockdown was lifted at about noon Thursday with no reported problems at the school.

There were no arrests and no weapon was found, according to the office of the superintendent of schools.

Officials closed the school at about 11:30 a.m. after receiving a tip via Michigan’s new OK2Say hotline.

“The nature of the information provided through the tip suggested that a student may have a weapon with plans to use it during the school day,” the district said in a release. “The building was immediately put into lockdown and police were dispatched. At this point, there is no threat to students or staff members, and the matter is under police investigation.”
