PROVO, Utah — A lockdown at Provo High School has been lifted, according to authorities.

Sgt. Nisha King with the Provo Police Department said the school was placed in lockdown after a student at the school reported seeing a gun during an argument between two males.

“The school was immediately put on lockdown, with students evacuated and all precautionary measures being taken,” police said.

No injuries were reported and police said both individuals involved in the argument had been located.

“We understand this is a stressful, concerning time and want to reassure parents and students that their safety is our top priority,” police said. “We want to thank everyone for your patience and for abiding by lockdown protocols for their and others safety.”

Nearby Lakeview Elementary School locked its doors and continued with classes as normal, with the exception of outdoor activities, school officials said.

Police said they are continuing their investigation at the high school.
