Police found a BB gun in a backpack during South Broward High School’s code red lockdown Tuesday afternoon, Hollywood police said.

Hollywood police tweeted around 3:27 p.m. — about two hours after the school was placed on an emergency code red — that they had detained two suspects, and one of them had a backpack with the BB gun in it.

No one was injured at the school at 1901 N. Federal Hwy. The lockdown was lifted at 3:16 p.m. Tuesday, according to police tweets.

The school was placed on code red, which means classroom doors are locked and students and faculty assume a protective position, as a precaution around 1:30 p.m.



This report will be updated as more information becomes available.
