The Waverly Superintendent said the Elementary School locked down for eight minutes this morning, while sheriff's deputies investigated a report of a man with a gun.
Sgt. Tommy Trotter with the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office says at 8:05 Wednesday morning, there was a report of a man walking in a backyard with a gun.
Based on a recent previous incident Sgt. Trotter said deputies thought it may have been an air soft gun, but for precautionary reasons responded to the situation like it was a real gun.
Over the next hour, Sgt. Trotter said deputies interviewed three people and they determined a 20-year-old man had an air soft gun and had fired it at a garage.
Waverly Superintendent Bill Heimann said after learning of the incident, the elementary school locked down for precautionary reasons. Heimann said he was in the process of locking down all schools, when he learned from deputies the gun wasn't real.
LSO deputies ticketed the 20-year-old for disturbing the peace and criminal mischief.
