KLAMATH COUNTY, Ore. — Students playing with a BB gun pistol "that appeared to be a handgun" led administrators at the Henley Complex schools to put their buildings on lockdown Wednesday morning, according to the Klamath County School District (KCSD).

"The lockdown occurred at about 9 a.m. after students recorded a video of two other students playing with a BB gun pistol that was a replica of a handgun," the District said in a statement.

Some students reported the incident to administrators, who put the entire Henley Complex on lockdown until law enforcement officers arrived.

Deputies from the Klamath County Sheriff's Office (KCSO) found the two students involved and confiscated the BB gun from their vehicle.

By 9:30 a.m., school officials released the lockdown procedure, and "regular school operations resumed."

"The Henley Complex appreciates the observance of students who made the report to help create a safe environment and the sheriff’s department quick response," KCSD said.
