Police: Missing gun leads to school lockdown

- The lockdown at Kensington Urban and Business High School has been lifted. 

Police received a report that a school police officer's gun was missing from his car on Tuesday. According to police, the school officer wasn't sure if the gun was taken at school or at home but the missing gun led to a lockdown of Kensington Urban Education Academy and led to panicked parents.

The lockdown lasted for several hours as police searched the building.  As officers went through the school word of the lockdown spread among parents

Neither the police nor the Philadelphia School District could provide us any specific information about the school officer or why the school was thought to be at risk.

Still unsure of what specifically happened; students began trickling out of the school themselves trying to explain details to parents who were happy they were safe but still wondering what went on inside the school.

No one was hurt; however, we still don't know if the officer's gun has been found or why a gun was possibly left unsecured in a car.
