Lock Down Lifted At Anderson School

An Elementary School in Anderson was ordered locked down Wednesday morning due to a gun scare that turned out to be false. At 8:25AM, administrators of Meadow Lane School on Balls Ferry Road called Anderson Police. They said the parents of a student were on campus in a heated argument stemming from a custody dispute. The mother told school officials that the father had a gun. Police ordered a lock down as they were en route. Officers arrived and found that the man did not have a gun, nor did he pose any threat. He was just there to serve custody papers to the mother. The lockdown was then lifted and the school day resumed.
