No gun found at evacuated Arizona schoolFebruary 5, 2013 @ 6:36 pm
YUMA, Ariz. (AP) - Police in southwestern Arizona say no gun was found after a Yuma school was evacuated in response to an unconfirmed report of a student possibly having a weapon.
Yuma police say they responded to Rancho Viejo Elementary School about 10 a.m. Tuesday and did a "systematic search" of the campus.
City spokeswoman Martha Guzman says school buses took students to another school several miles away where parents picked them up.
The report of a gun also prompted lockdowns at two other nearby schools.
Police say students at Salida Del Sol Elementary and WACOG Preschool also were bused to another location so their parents could take them home.
The superintendent of the Crane Elementary School District _ Robert Klee _ says students and staff followed procedures and no injuries were reported.
