October 18, 2007

INWOOD, W.Va. ? Musselman High School in Inwood was locked down this morning after a threat claiming a student had a gun in the school was called in, Berkeley County Sheriff Randy Smith said. 

Police investigated the threat and did not find a weapon. Police were continuing to investigate, Smith said in a 12:10 p.m. telephone interview. Smith said the lockdown was lifted around noon. 

Berkeley County Schools spokeswoman Jaimee Borger said the school was in a "code orange" status after the threat was received. Code orange means students and staff remain in the building and follow the usual class changes and activities, according to a school system press release. However, under a code orange, visitors have limited access.
