Watertown High School was put in lockdown mode for approximately 20 minutes yesterday after police received a report of two occupants of a vehicle waving a handgun in the air, according to a press release issued by the school.
Police located the vehicle, unoccupied, in front of the school. The two occupants of the vehicle were found in the high school. Police determined that the alleged handgun was inside the vehicle. Upon closer inspection, the "firearm" was determined to be a plastic toy.
Everything is back to normal today, and the two individuals (who are former students) have been banned from property owned by the Watertown Public Schools.
Police are continuing their investigation into the incident.
