A report that a student might have a weapon, forced a shelter in place Wednesday morning at Keyport High School.

According to authorities, police received information that a student posted a photo on social media, where the student appeared to have access to a weapon.

Officers responded to Keyport High School and placed the school on lockdown while Central School was placed on shelter in place.

Upon further investigation, police determined that there was no viable threat to the students or the staff. The allegation was unfounded and was not a credible threat to the safety of others.

Keyport police assured the community that a weapon was not removed or recovered from the school or any other location.
