A former student with a weapon prompted the lockdown at Langham Creek High School Friday morning, according to school district officials.

David Hughes, principal of Langham Creek, issued a statement that said shortly before 10 a.m., Cy-Fair ISD police officers received a tip that a former student inside the school was reported to be in possession of a weapon.



Hughes said the suspect fled the school and officers quickly apprehended him. A weapon was discovered in his possession and the school entered lockdown mode as a precautionary measure.



Deputies with the Harris County Sheriff's Office responded to the campus, investigating reports of shots fired, but Cy-Fair ISD said no shots were fired on campus.



Hughes said that once officers issued an all-clear shortly after 10:30 a.m., the campus began the process of lifting the lockdown and worked to reunite students with concerned parents. That process was taking place in the multi-purpose gym. Parents are asked to park in the west parking lot.

Due to the high volume of parents arriving on campus to reunite with students, Hughes said they've made the decision to initiate an early release for Langham Creek High School.

Transportation is being provided as students are dismissed at about 12:45 p.m., with staggered release times.
