JAMESTOWN, N.C. — Guilford County Schools said a lockdown drill at Jamestown Middle School transitioned to a real lockdown after someone at the school reported they saw someone with a weapon.

Law enforcement searched the school and confiscated a BB gun. No one was injured. The lockdown was later lifted.
