PRICE — Mont Harmon Junior High School was on lockdown Wednesday after police say a student showed a gun to another student and hid the weapon on campus.
The student who was shown the gun by an eighth-grade boy immediately informed school officials at 11:45 a.m., and the school was put on lockdown, police said. Three minutes after the lockdown, officers from the Price Police Department, Carbon County Sheriff's Office, Helper Police Department and Adult Probation and Parole arrived at the school, 60 W. 400 North.
The student who had the gun was taken into custody and interviewed by police. The student revealed he'd hidden the gun on school property and led officers to where he left it. Police retrieved the Colt .38 revolver but found no ammunition with it. No one was ever threatened with the gun, according to Price police.
The situation was resolved within 45 minutes, and the lockdown was lifted.
The student was taken to the Price Youth Detention Facility, and the investigation was ongoing.
