Police searched James G. Blaine Elementary School Thursday afternoon after a report of a kid with a gun inside the school, located in the Strawberry Mansion section of Philadelphia.

A spokesman for the Philadelphia School District tells NBC10 that the school went into lockdown at 2:45 p.m. after a student reported seeing a gun on another student. The lockdown was lifted an hour later.

An 8th grader was questioned by authorities. Police finished their search just before 6:00 p.m. and no weapon was found.

The school is located on the 3000 block of West Berks Street.
