TUSCOLA COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Millington Schools were briefly put on "modified lockdown" early Monday afternoon following an incident involving a gun.

Millington Schools Superintendent John Males tells WNEM.com that a woman who is a volunteer with the district went to Kirk Early Elementary and asked to open carry a handgun in the school.

Even though the woman had all the proper legal permits and licenses to own and open carry the gun, the school district did not allow her to do so.

The district put all of its buildings into a "modified" lockdown as a security precaution until Males and Tuscola County Prosecutor Mark Reene had determined that the woman was off school property.

No further information on the incident was released by school officials or authorities.
