DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - A Dothan school was on lockdown Tuesday morning after reports of a weapon on campus.

The Dothan City School Administration says they learned of an unloaded weapon on the Dothan Preparatory school campus. The school was placed in lockdown while school administration and Dothan Police investigated, confirmed the existence of the unloaded weapon, and confiscated it.

DCS says the person with the weapon was taken from Dothan Prep by DPD and will face consequences from the law and the school system.

“The incident was handled promptly and effectively by our administration and Dothan Police Department and we will continue to investigate the situation,” says Meagan Dorsey with Dothan City Schools. “Dothan City Schools continue to encourage our students to always report the actual or suspected presence of any weapon to an adult. With everyone’s help, we can continue to keep our school a safe place to learn.”
