Elyria High School was briefly locked down Thursday morning after an alleged threat.

At about 9:15 a.m., a 14-year-old student allegedly made a threat, which was heard by a group of other students. Administrators  immediately locked down the school.

The Elyria Police Department was contacted and promptly responded. The student, who left the school after making the threat, was located at his mother’s place of employment, and the lockdown was lifted. The lockdown lasted about 5 minutes.
