School put on brief lockdown


Decatur – A small private school in Decatur was on lockdown for about 90 minutes earlier today.


The principal at Our Lady of Lourdes says a teacher and a couple students spotted two men outside the school with a gun.


School leaders called police who found both men, one of them with a BB gun. Police are still interviewing the men, and say they will be charged.


The school re-opened a short time later. No one was hurt.
