Dillard High School in Fort Lauderdale was placed on lockdown for about 50 minutes Thursday, from just before noon to around 12:45 p.m.

Fort Lauderdale police Det. Tracy Figone said in an email that the lockdown was placed after police learned that a student that might’ve made a threat to the school was on campus.

The student was found off campus. The threat’s still under investigation. No one has been arrested and no other schools were on lockdown.
