Lockdown is lifted at Armwood High, deputies found bullets but no gun

SEFFNER — Armwood High School was on lockdown Wednesday morning due to an incident involving a student armed with a knife.

A student told school officials Wednesday morning that another student might have a weapon inside a backpack, according to Hillsborough County sheriff's officials. Deputies were called at 9:28 a.m. and the school was placed on lockdown.

When deputies searched the 16-year-old's belongings, they found a knife and a bag of ammunition, authorities said. The student was arrested on counts of possessing a weapon on school property and being a felon in possession of ammunition.

Deputies conducted a search of the entire campus. Around 3 p.m. the school district reported that no gun was found and students were dismissed on schedule.
