BATON ROUGE - Authorities placed a Baton Rouge school on lockdown after sheriff's deputies said two kids got into an argument, and a bystander threatened to get a gun.

A sheriff's department spokesperson said the argument happened mid-morning at Southeast Middle School.

Deputies said during the altercation a third student made a comment that suggested he was going to get a weapon. Deputies put the school on lockdown while they searched every student and every room in the school, but found no weapon.

A school spokesperson said the student who made the threat had been submitted for expulsion.
