Gun Holster Leads to School Lockdowns

Two South Jersey schools went on lockdown this morning around 9:10.

The reason for the lockdown at Eastern High School on Laurel Oak Road in Voorhees, N.J. and nearby Kellman Brown Academy -- a Jewish day school for students from preschool through middle school -- was a parked Jeep in a nearby dentist's office parking lot on Haddonfield-Berlin Road (County Route 561).

A Kellman spokesman confirmed that the academy was put on lockdown as a precaution because of a suspicious vehicle that possibly had guns and ammunition inside.

Voorhees Police tell NBC10's Cydney Long that someone spotted a holster inside the Jeep with Pa. tags. Police were called in to investigate.

Police identified the driver and found that the man is allowed to legally own guns but that there were no guns inside the vehicle, according to police.

The man isn't expected to be charged.

The precautionary lockdowns were lifted just before 11 a.m.
