Law enforcement responded to the school around noon after the Austin Police Department’s School Resource Officer requested assistance in response to the report of a gun being brandished at the school. Officials said Wednesday the initial investigation did not uncover evidence to indicate a gun had been brandished. 

Austin Police Chief David McKichan said Thursday morning that investigators have not been able to substantiate the report of a gun being in the school. He said it was not a Swatting call because the report originated from inside of the school. 

McKichan said the report came in after an altercation occurred in one of the school’s bathrooms. No injuries were reported in the altercation. Officers did detain a 15-year-old boy and 16-year-old boy.
