Two Gering schools were on lockdown Monday after a report was made about a man carrying a gun near the schools.
Police officials say Gering High School and Lincoln Elementary were placed on lockdown for about 45 minutes Monday afternoon.
A female student told officials she saw a young man walking near some
tennis courts at the high school. She said the man was wearing a
hooded sweatshirt with a weapon, possibly a rifle, sticking out the top
of the sweatshirt.
