Police: No one ‘in danger’ in Florida high school lockdown

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) — Police say no one is danger at a Florida high school after a lockdown prompted by a report of a possible intruder.

Police say Coral Springs High School security initially reported spotting someone near the campus fence. Authorities say officers found that person, a juvenile determined to be a student.

The lockdown came amid lingering U.S. jitters after the latest deadly school shooting left two students dead on Thursday at a Santa Clarita, California high school.

Also Thursday, students rallied in Tallahassee, Florida’s capital, demanding lawmaker action on gun control. Those taking part included one survivor of a Parkland, Florida high school shooting that killed 17 people last year. Coral Springs police, nearby, were among the first responders then.

Coral Springs High School has about 2,900 students.
