BATON ROUGE - Sheriff's deputies said they're investigating a call which claimed there was a gun at an East Baton Rouge school after a fight earlier this morning.

Sheriff's department spokesperson Casey Hicks said investigators found no gun at Southeast Middle School, and believe the call was a prank.

She said deputies responded to the school after a fight involving three students around 7:30 a.m. There were no weapons involved in the fight, and no injuries according to investigators.

Hicks said an anonymous 911 call came in after the fight was cleared, claiming there was possibly a gun at the school. Deputies put the school on lockdown and searched it, but did not find any weapon.

Hicks said the school was taking additional precautions per their security policy, and deputies were continuing to investigate the call's origins.
