LATHROP, CA - Three students were questioned by sheriff's investigators about what they might know about a threat involving a gun at Lathrop High School Friday morning.

The information prompted a one-hour lockdown of the campus at 612 Center Street while San Joaquin County sheriff's deputies detained the students, searched them and the school, according to Clara Schmidt, spokeswoman for Manteca Unified School District. No weapon was found and the school was declared safe at 11:30 a.m.

The threat came in the form of an anonymous tip to the sheriff's department which informed school officials.

According to sheriff's spokesman Deuty Les Garcia, no arrests were made but the parents of the three students were contacted.
