(CBS Charlotte) — Ashley Park Elementary, located in West Charlotte, was placed on lockdown Friday morning, after a student brought a gun to school.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police were originally dispatched after reports surfaced of an armed-person near the school. However, new information has revealed that a student had a gun on campus.

The school was still on lockdown this afternoon, and police officers with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools are investigating the incident.
