MILLERSVILLE, Md. — Bus service and school dismissals have resumed for Anne Arundel County's Old Mill cluster.

Police were called to search Old Mill High School, after a student said they may have seen someone with a weapon earlier in the day.

When the student who was supposedly armed didn't show up in class, the school was temporarily placed on lockdown creating late dismissal times.

Police eventually found the 14-year-old student in question in a common area, with a BB gun nearby. Police issued a juvenile citation.

No injuries were reported.

The school system says the incident is expected to cause some bus service delays for the entire Old Mill cluster.

After school activities including games and practices have been canceled.
